Sunken Treasure Scuba Center Beach Party/Treasure Hunt
Back in 1979, Sunken Treasure ran it's first underwater Treasure Hunt drawing divers from seven states. First place prize, a trip for two to the Bahamas. These events ran for a number of years and then the Lock Haven Fire Company took over to raise funds for their water rescue team. Since they stopped we have ran a number of events on a smaller local scale. The last treasure hunt we ran was just a few years ago and we think it's time to have another. So on Sunday, August 26th at 11:00 am we'll be gathering again for our latest at Jay Street Bridge.
Over the years we have given away thousands of dollar in prizes. We don't have exact details yet but all entry fees raised WILL go back into prizes. So the more entries the more/better the prizes. Sunken Treasure will provide food and beverages after the event.
The event is open to all certified divers who wish to dive or snorkel. We have done this before so that divers who do not own or want to rent gear can still participate. Snorkelers will start 5 minutes before the divers.
Want to signup? The fine print:
- Cost is $15.00/participate if you preregister or $20.00 the day of the event.
- You must fill out the STSC Treasure Hunt Event form and a Jay Street Waiver if you haven't done so in the past.
- Divers must dive with a buddy and have a dive flag for each team.
- We must have 10 divers pre-registered by 8/20 for this event to happen.
- The prize list is based on 10-20 divers participating. More divers, more prizes.

The kids are starting to get those school supplies and as we realize the summer season is starting to wind down, so I would like to invite you to STSC's BBQ on Saturday, August 25 at 4pm. Hopefully monsoon season will be over and we can enjoy a little comradery. So bring a guest and your favorite dish along with a lawn chair. Oh and some good diving stories to share. This is open to any student or diver. See You There.
And the Winner is....
Celebrating the start of our 40th year in business we asked you to share your favorite adventures with Sunken Treasure Scuba Center. In return we would give away a underwater camera. All posts had be on the Sunken Treasure Scuba Center Facebook page. Since it would be hard to figure a favorite story we decided who ever shares a story and had the most likes/loves by June 30th would be the winner.
The winning story was submitted by Jessie Manotti in the photo right and her daughter Lillian who came to help pickup the winnings is on the left.
When I was a kid, some years ago-never mind how long precisely-it is rude to ask a lady her age and annoying to remind people of that fact.
Lycoming County is belted by gorgeous brooks, runs, streams, creeks and rivers. My Aunt and Uncle would load us into the truck to take us gigging in Pine Creek. Usually three youths in one seat belt and a huge canoe sticking out of the back of the truck like the ark. The closer we got to the "crick" the air becomes cooler-"We are nearly there!"
There were other family's loitering and unloading their water crafts into the creek. One family's looked like they prepared to go rifle hunting they had so much camo on. The more novice looking family swamped their canoe before launching. (Crowds were now bound for the waters edge)
My Uncle is a Sailor by definition. We were unloaded and on our way down the creek without a hitch. As I looked back he was impressive!
The creek became deeper as it carried us a little further down. My Uncle guided the canoe perfectly to the creek's edge. My Aunt helped us put on flippers-handing us snorkels and goggles. My uncle instructed us to spit into our goggles before dunking them into the creek. This touches ones sense of humor-Living on a farm spitting was normal. Most adults would frown on spitting. Like duckling we followed his lead. My Aunt stayed in the canoe navigating it down the creek while we snorkeled behind.
We watched my uncle gig carp and toss them into the canoe. He gave us turns and showed us safe proper techniques in gigging.
When we started to become cold or tire my aunt would help us back into the canoe. The seats were made of styrofoam and tethered to the canoe. I enjoyed being a passenger spotting waterfowl, native fish and carp.
Everyone waves to each other as you travel down the creek. The fisherman fishing at the creeks edge. The sunburnt redhead smiling with only three teeth and two of them are in her pocket. The older kids on the black bridge before jumping off. Everyone is content on the creek.
It hadn't rain for a while-so the creek was clear and you could see every rock, old tire and log on the bottom of the creek. We watched my Uncle trailing the Moby Dick of all Carp. I watched with wide eyes as our captain gigged this beast! Something you might not know about carp. They are stubborn and do not know when they are dead. The beast drug my uncle across the creek bed. Once my uncle got ahold of him and killed it he tossed it into the canoe. The carp started to flop around. My uncle moved it and put the foam seat on top of it and ask me to sit down on it. I rode that carp for 8 seconds before he bucked me off.
No PBR belt buckle for me but their was a happy Black bear that ate like a king that night!

Should I Dive Wet or Dry?
There’s no question if you’ve been diving a long time that wetsuits have gotten much better over the years, so why go to a drysuit?
Warmth is probably the most important reason to decide to dive dry. You know that neither a wetsuit nor drysuit actually keeps you warm. What they do is slow the amount of heat loss. Wetsuits do this using a layer of neoprene and a thin layer of water trapped between that and the skin. As the wetsuit compresses, it gets thinner and loses insulating capacity. Drysuits use air and a combination of undergarments. With drysuits you can add layers of insulation to slow the loss of body heat. Drysuits allow the diver to add air and compensate for the increased pressure at depth.
Comfort would be another reason. Wetsuits can be snug and uncomfortable to some people and the same suit doesn’t work in all conditions whereas a drysuit (by simply changing the thermals you wear) works under more circumstances and generally does not fit as tightly, adding to your comfort.
Once a diver buys a wetsuit there is very little maintenance other than proper rinsing. Drysuits, with proper care, can last 15 – 20 years or more. This is using the suit on a regular basis, say 100 dives a year. A wetsuit seeing that much use may last five years. They say in 3 years a wetsuit would lose 10% of it's stretch and in 10 or 12 years 80% of its’ stretch is gone. In the long run, a dry suit may actually be less expensive and dry suits often hold their value for resale.
A drysuit will most definitely extend your diving season making it more comfortable to dive sooner and longer into the season.
A Rising Tide
This is a documentary series about Colorado students on a scuba diving and marine science adventure of a lifetime. 3 students were awarded a full scholarship to get their open water scuba certification, a full set of dive gear including wetsuit, fins, mask and snorkel, and a BCD, and a marine science education.

PADI Equipment Specialist Course & Touch...
As a scuba diver, you already know that diving is an equipment-intensive activity. From accessories such as dive lights and underwater cameras, to essential gear like exposure suits, cylinders and regulators, there’s a lot to wrap your head around.
Unfortunately, many divers are reluctant to learn more about their equipment because they feel they’re not ‘mechanically inclined’. But here’s the good news: you don’t need a degree in engineering to understand how scuba equipment works; the Equipment Specialist Touch will help you to understand how (and why) certain pieces of scuba equipment work.
The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch is a fully interactive and comprehensive digital product for iOS and Android tablet devices. This valuable tool provides a beautifully immersive look into scuba equipment through short video clips and 3D rotating images to help you get a more realistic insight into how things work.
To purchase your own copy of the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch and/or book a PADI Equipment Specialist course, contact Sunken Treasure Scuba Center today!

Zena - Zeagle's Womens BCD
The greatest difficulty in properly sizing a woman's Buoyancy System is not finding a smaller size, or allowing for the bust, but lies in the fact that women's bodies have a defined waist where a waistband must fasten in order to secure the BC. At the same time, women tend to have both a shorter torso length and a lower center of buoyancy compared to men. Conventional buoyancy systems, which would ideally be worn lower for best balance and comfort, must be worn higher, around the narrowest part of the waist, in order to be secure.
The Zena BC has been designed by women as a buoyancy system specifically for women. The twin straps adjust to fit waist and hips independently, while the elastic front zippered panels provide outstanding fit and comfort. Zeagle's patented PFS sizing system allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted, positioning the weights low, around the body's center of buoyancy. The torso adjustable shoulder straps and side straps come equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning/doffing. The Zena BCD has a 31 lbs. (13.6 kg) lift capacity bladder, and a 24 lbs. (10.9 kg) capacity Ripcord Weight System with a 16 lbs. (7.26 kg) rear trim pocket non-releasable capacity. Attachment of accessories is made easy with the four stainless steel D-rings on the vest and storage of gloves, small light or other accessories can be accomplished with the expandable mesh quick-pocket" at waist. Built to last from the Zena will give years of reliable service. To provide easy trimming of buoyancy the Zena has a lower left and right rear over pressure relief/pull dump valves.

Recall ScubaPro Galileo SOL and Luna Dive Computers
SCUBAPRO has notified the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that it is voluntarily recalling 1,486 UWATEC Galileo Luna and Sol dive computers sold in the United States beginning May 7, 2015. This provides you with information on the recall along with details on the logistics that will be used to complete the recall.
We learned from a small number of consumer communications that certain Galileo dive computers experienced screen freezes. No injuries have been reported. Out of an abundance of caution, and consistent with our safety-first philosophy, SCUBAPRO is voluntarily recalling dive computers with specific serial numbers.
The affected products are UWATEC Galileo Luna and Sol dive computers with these serial numbers:
Galileo LUNA: from 150422 0058 001 to 150903 0338 005
Galileo SOL: from 150423 0202 001 to 150921 0001 005
If your UWATEC Galileo Luna or Sol dive computer does not have a serial number in the ranges listed above, then it does not fall within the scope of this recall.
Consumers with affected computers should return them to an authorized SCUBAPRO dealer or to SCUBAPRO directly. Please call our toll free hotline at 1-800-790-3757 to register for the recall and we will mail you a return form and a postage-prepaid box to return your affected units to us. Consumers will receive free replacement units in early 2016.
