In Topic: Am I missing something? - Galapagos

It may be a coincidence, but I just noticed two pretty harsh reader reports in Undercurrent about the Carib Dancer in the Bahamas.  It may be totally unrelated  I'm just speculating, but perhaps they are getting bad press and need to offer big discounts to regain their reputation and do damage control.  I've been to Galapagos twice but not on an Aggressor or Dancer.  I have been on 4 or 5 Dancers/Aggressors around the world and I've generally found them to be very good.

Thanks for all this information.  Your shots are amazing as always. Have you heard anything indicating a manufacturer is moving to produce these or is this just to tease us?  :)

The vinegar and alcohol worked great.  Thanks everyone.  Looks shinny and new now.

Thanks Bill.  I haven't found any definitive suggestion on acid.  It seems that white vinegar may be the best place to start.  My concern is what's under the contacts.  Those screws are pretty small, but I could probably get them out.  I could try getting a small socket wrench onto the other contacts, but they look pretty flat.  I don't know if that's asking for trouble to try to take them all out or if I should just dump some vinegar in, scrape off what I can, and leave it at that.   

In Topic: 8 inch vs mini dome with 10-17 and 1.4X question

21 April 2015 - 04:28 AM

Hi Johhy,


Nice images! I used the 8-15mm with my 4 inch Zen dome and loved the results.  According to the Nauticam port charts you need a 30mm port extension  with the the Nauticam 4.33.  As always I'd double check with one of our sponsors before any purchase.  Some of the Zen domes have changed their length over time like the DP100.  Better to check to make sure of the correct extension.




Thanks a lot Steve.  I'll have to investigate the 8-15 some more.  My wallet has been too full lately.  The 8-15 may help with that. :)
