shearwater2dropboxFor some time now I’ve been using Shearwater Desktop on multiple computers, Windows on my work laptop, MacOS X on my home laptop & desktop while keeping them in sync using DropBox.

My database isn’t that big so this might get slower when your database gets bigger and bigger..

Here I will explain how you can do it

My Shearwater Petrel review

Categories: Review
Published on: 04/02/2013

 

I bought my Shearwater Petrel last autumn after I was actually saving for a Liquivision Lynx. The problem with the Lynx was that it’s release date was pushed back over and over again. Even today it is expected in ‘Spring 2013′. I was also going for a more technical approach of diving and decided to leave those tank modules for what they were..

Shearwater_PetrelAfter receiving the Petrel (via CETO Passion for Diving, Thanks for the good service Andy!) I was impressed by how easy the computer is. Even with my (then) limited knowledge about Gradient Factors and M-Values which you can find a lot of information about on the net (the ones I’ve read are on the bottom of this post) it was fairly easy to set the computer to your needs.. well.. to be honest, they’ve already put everything to your needs and you’ll be in the water with your new computer before you’ll know it!

Dive at the “Grote Hegge” in Thorn, the Netherlands

In the beginning and ending you can see my Instructor/Buddy; Pieter De Vos/FOX. Visibility wasn’t that bad (we’ve had worse) but I’ve seen other movies when the visibility was much better in Thorn. The water was pretty cold and so we limited our time in the water.

Dry Gloves

Reading I Are Diver’s article on dry gloves got my wondering, why do I… keep torturing myself with cold hands? When you are thinking about your cold hands on a dive you are NOT thinking about the diving and your surrounding.. you are sinking.. (click to understand)

I do not easily ask for advice about diving gear because it has come to my attention in the diving world that every diver thinks his setup is the best. So I went out on investigation myself. Since I wear an O’Three Ri 1-100 Drysuit which I bought with Passioned Divers the search is even more complex because it has neoprene wrist seals and (mostly) all dry gloves systems make use of an o-ring that fits on a latex seal. So I will probably have to add latex seals over my neoprene seals just to attach the locking system. Only northern diver seems to have a way to directly attach to neoprene seals. But there is a good side on having an extra seal over the neoprene one and that’s while diving in warmer water I can just leave the dry gloves in the car since the original neoprene seal are still functional.

And then I stumbled upon KUBI and found a lot of positive reviews like the one of Richard Wait on his website wait.hu, I even found out that O’Three now puts them on for their customers.

So now my mind is set, the KUBI’s are ordered, the suit is scheduled to go in for an extra latex seal next Tuesday.
