  8. Canderwasih Bay is relatively shallow, unprotected and prone to rough waters. It is good for whale shark encounters, other wise there are better places. We dove it several years ago and after the whale sharks, diving was some what poor until we steamed west and turned down into Raja. Others may have different experiences; i.e. "you should have been here yesterday!" When we dove Triton, it was at the end of a plankton bloom and vis was low; but was still good for macro and CFWA! We would return to Triton, but not Canderwasih 1
  9. Pack the inside with clean paper and submerse for a time. Open case and look for wet spot location.

  11. A soak in de-ionized water may help. I know it leaves my car spotless!
  12. I'd polish it out. Don't be too concerned about a micro change in the dome radius as you'll never see it in images. If you have access to a small, low speed bench lathe, chuck up the dome and run it at the lowest speed. Polish in and out, always using water or kerosene as a lubricant; ideally getting figure 8 swirl marks on the dome when first starting . Or lacking a lathe. a slow potters wheel will also work. Using these mechanized options will significantly reduce the 'elbow grease' method. "Laziness is the mother of invention!"
