I'm hoping to dive the Cooper River in the next month or so. Most of my questions were answered by watching a bunch of videos on Youtube and perusing the internets. The main question that I'm left with is "how much lighting do I need?" I see a BIG range, in terms of the brightness (or lack thereof) of lighting setups that people are using. From people using a ~500 lumens main light, to people using a helmet with a 6,000 lumens main light and two 1,000 lumens backups. I've currently got a 1,000 lumens light with a glove for my primary and ~600 lumens (I think it would be next to useless diving there...from the videos I'm seeing) for a backup. For the purposes of diving the Cooper, I am leaning towards putting together a budget helmet lighting setup. Budget, as in two self-contained 1,000 lumens main lights. My question...do those of you that have dived the Cooper think that two 1,000 lumens helmet mounted lights would be sufficient for a primary lighting source? For those of you that have put together a helmet, do you have any feedback on what did and did not work for you? ex. I see people using ~$40 skateboard helmets to mount the lights. If that works, I don't see the point of spending ~$80 for a "diving" helmet. I would appreciate any advice that you can offer. Thank you.
Got to spend another weekend diving the Cooper River in South Carolina with Alan Devier. If you dive the Cooper or want to dive the Cooper, Alan is the guy to go with. He is a class act. Found a bunch of good teeth and was an all around good time.
2thdoc posted a topic in Fossil IDNew here to the forum and to fossil hunting. Found a few teeth over the past few weeks was hoping to get some help with identification and where to find more in the low country. Living in mount pleasant with access to a 23 foot bay boat as well as a few paddle boards. Would love to meet some great people with the same interests as myself and my wife. We would love to host some new friends on our boat for some hunting. If you are in the area and wouldn't mind the company of some newbs that are eager to learn and hunt send me a PM. We are looking forward to becoming knowledgeable on the area and meeting others that share our interests. I have attached a picture of a few of the things we found any help on ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
