Dive #163: Denny Park, Lake Washington, Kirkland, WA

Place:Denny Park Buddy:Doug
Weather:Overcast, drizzle Type:Shore
Max. depth (m):32.3 Visibility (m):7
Time down:10:23 Dive time (mins):32
Average depth (m):22.5 Water temp. (C):8.0

Notes: Dive #13 in dry suit. Still struggling a bit getting air out. Air goes to my feet a bit and I can sort of deal with that but only by breaking trim really severely, in a way that makes me rise in the water so that I become even more buoyant. Maybe I should release some air from the wing before doing this. I really need a concentrated 4-6 dives over a few days to really work on this. Will have to make to with 1 a week at max for now though.

Equipment: As established during fundies course. I had to wear a weight belt because one of my BC pockets is away for repair (clip cracked). Removed 6 lb of my usual 16 lb to allow for fresh water. Might have been slightly under-weighted despite LP-104. Very cold–especially hands. Need thicker gloves.

Accumulated time underwater: 4 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes.
