    Hello,

    Looking for a dive buddy for tomorrow, Saturday (9-6-2019) at White Star Quarry in Ohio. I’m open to the start time and the number of dives we do. I have roughly 70 dives under my belt. I dive drysuit with a DIR rig. PM me if interested please or shoot me a text (deleted number). Thank you and have a nice day.

    Another good place to look is the Great Lakes Wrecking Crew’s FB page. Will probably reach a lot more people.

    If you want dive buddies, I strongly suggest you put aside any qualms you have and get FB. I know a lot of people who complain they can’t find dive buddies but refuse to use FB. You have a choice to make.

    Not this time (getting ready to head to Bali next week), but another time I might be interested in trying this? Only ever done warm water dives though, what's the temps at the quarry? I use just a rash guard in Roatan, but I have a full 3mm available that fits nicely here. What would I need on top of that do you think?

    Generally right now, temp at depth is on the 50s to low 60s, above 20 feet it’s in the 69s to 70s. The rash guard and 3mm would be inadequate. To cold in my opinion. Drysuit is optimal but 7mm or 5mm can get you through a dive.
