Well guys I'm sorry to say but today was a bust.
Weather conditions were great, the boat ran great, visibility was great as I could see our anchor 50' below the boat which in Monterey is rare.
Problem is I didn't dive! Funny thing about dry suits, they only keep water out when you close BOTH zippers
. I was too anxious to get ready and roll off the boat, I set up my BC did a buddy check and we rolled in. Within a few seconds my suit started to flood with the nice and chilly 52 degree water quickly filling up my suit. I inflated my BC and quickly got our of my gear and in the boat, the rest of the crew continued on once they new I was ok.
So I sat in the boat watching the bubbles from the other divers. I did get to see 4 Otters cracking crab on their chest while floating in the kelp.
Oh well, lesson learned.
Taco was great, 225 miles round trip. Handled all our gear and then some. It will be nice when I get my rubber bed mat on Monday then my G4 Fold-A-cover hopefully on Tuesday to help secure my gear and keep stuff from sliding around.
