comment Which fingers to use in a 2 finger pocket when rock climbing?
Using index and middle leaves the rest of your fingers useless (aside from your thumb). Using middle and ring lets you also use your index finger and thumb

Mr Wizard - but if you use your middle and ring fingers, you can straighten your index finger. See the difference?

comment Any swim goggles that may be beneficial for a surfer?
I think the only real downsides to goggles are: 1 - at some point they will get ripped off and you'll not be ready, and 2 - it's so nice surfing with as little between you and the elements as possible. I say go for it though, if it helps you

comment What are the key differences between Mountaineering and Rock Climbing?
Hi there - welcome. Can you please edit your answer so we can read it a bit more easily. A spacing, punctuation and spelling check would really help. See How to Answer for more guidance.

comment What exercises can you do before Scuba Diving to improve your air consumption?
I'd defer to you on that, as it is obvious you have much more experience with Scuba than I, however as part of my training I did find that larger lung capacity also meant I did not need to take so many breaths. So that isn't necessarily an issue.

comment Allergic to Neoprene and need water shoes
Canvas works really well - but if you intend to swim as well, make sure they have enough of a heel to remain on your foot.

comment How should I check the anchor is secure when I anchoring a small yacht off unfamiliar land?
As a safety recommendation - sure, it's probably good. I don't know that one as it is US focused, and we have others this side of the water that I used to teach years ago when I was a sailing instructor. But unless it is in your post it doesn't help - so the down vote is for your post itself. As I mentioned, How to Answer explains what we need in a post, so you can easily edit to improve and hopefully gain upvotes.

Hi Skip - Sleeping on board is an option but explicitly not what I was asking in the question. If you write a summary of the boating course that might be helpful. See How to Answer for guidance.

comment Is there any evidence, one way or the other, that “Adopt a Highway” programs reduce littering?
Ab2 - Skeptics rejected it. I'll try and think of rewording, as I think the Core of it is good, it's just the evidence piece that doesn't quite work.
