    I loop the bungee through the metal and clamp it down with a zip tie. They stay in place. I usually replace them every three or four years.

    1. Didn't think my daughter would be a diver, she never showed an interest in diving until she went to school and work in Santa Barbara. I enjoyed the dives on the Channel Islands with her until she moved. The only thing I could figure was she was too careful to take up diving with me and my buddys.

    2. I wouldn't have believed I'd still be diving if you would have asked me back in '62. To be honest, I didn't think I'd last this long, period.

    I remember seeing something on TV about a lost cave diver as a child and said to myself there is now way I will ever go cave diving, Now I'm a full cave diver.

    Maybe more hear than see, but I never thought I would see/hear the divemaster giving the predive briefing point me out as the "most experienced diver on the boat." That happened last week. And no, my # of dives is not out of date.

    ... reminds me of an old friend who got certified in 2002. A couple weeks later he sends me an email from Florida, where he told me he was the most experienced diver on the boat ... he had all of eight dives at the time, including his four check-out dives ...

    I never thought I'd see the World Trade Center collapse from a mile away.

    Seeing the Attakulla Lodge at the bottom of Jocassee and the EOL of HITW tied to Shecks supposed champagne bottle was pretty awesome!(I don’t know the whole story with the champagne bottle, some will know it and maybe chime in)

    Likewise here. Back in 1962 I thought it was just a lark, then it became a lifestyle.

    I'm still waiting to see my first real life mermaid

    Medusa can be used to refer to the swimmig life history stage in any true jellyfish. (But not hydrozoans like Portuguese man o' war.) You may be wrong but you may be right....
