  • G
Top-flight dive! Saw Ossehanta, didn’t get lost, didn’t lose buddy, buddy ran out of air first (surfaced 50 yds from boat with 500 psi). Was toasty warm, and didn’t murk up the bottom.
28 07/08/95 Shoals (N of Diamon Island) Lk. George 3000 1300 03:10:00 PM 03:55:00 PM 60 58W 70A
  • H
Waited for a long time (15-20 min.) at surface before starting descent. Got seriously tangled in flag line, had to be rescued. Saw many dead crawdads on bottom. Then found the dropped bait bucket. Also, some steamboat parts. 20# was too light at surface, but good at depth. Took some work to start descent.
29 07/08/95 S of Diamond Island, Lk. George 3000 1300 04:35:00 PM 05:21:00 PM 35 65W 70A G - I Bass & Bluegill! Wrecked yacht. Followed wall on course of 350 out and 170 back. No flag, no tangle!

30 07/19/95 Red Hook Cove 2100 500 07:42:00 PM 08:22:00 PM 70 60W 80A
  • H
Bob was hasty, I took it slow due to some residual pain from ear infection. Tried to go N, looking for legenday swim-through. Bob turned W by accident. I went back E until we got into deep water (we were at 60’ with no visible bottom). VERY COLD. I lost bouyancy control for a while–the two-hand Valsalva is not compatible with operating the power inflator. Went S and came up to more reasonable digs. Surfaced within 50’ of boat due to blind, dumb luck.
31 07/27/95 Isle of Shoals, Maine 2900 1700 10:25:00 AM 11:10:00 AM 20 65W 80A
  • B
Crabs, Lobsters, Baby Tunny, Starfish, Anemone. Supposed to see seals, but went wrong way and didn’t allow for set of current. Course made good was way off. Poor Richie swam all that way and ran out of air and didn’t see seals either. Vis. was excellent! Knife sheath broke.

Dropped my #@!%$ dive light. 3mm just a little to light for such a long dive at that temp. Below thermocline (about 30’) very chilly. Above ‘cline very nice. Found bottles, found small wreck, many bass fingerlings. 1st rate dive. Barb Walter found my light.

  • F
Nice wall @ 40’. Paul dropped his weight belt, which I recovered. Paul had trouble with bouyancy, so did I. Note struggle reflected in high SACR.
36 08/25/95 Staghorn Cliffs 1850 850 07:55:00 AM 08:30:00 AM 46 70W 70A
  • F
Bass (rock and stiped). Kyle pukey at 40’, much better at 35’. Lost him at very end when I swam into a cloud of silt and he wasn’t able to follow. He surfaced and signalled with light. I followed.
37 08/30/95 Chimney Beach 2100 700 07:45:00 AM 08:30:00 AM 45 72W 68A

46 06/28/96 Small Wall - Bonaire, NA 3000 1100 01:47:00 PM 02:35:00 PM 65 80W 90A C - H Over limit on depth and time! Big mistake! Very nice reef area. Buddy claims to have seen big purcupine fish. Should have done depth/time plan : 40’:115 min., 50’:51 min, 60’:43 min, 70’:23 min. Should have put floor at 40’, if I slipped over to 50’, I would have been fine.
47 06/29/96 Jerry’s Jam, Klein Bonaire, NA 3000 1600 01:55:00 PM 02:45:00 PM 50 80W 90A

  • H
Poor depth control. 60’ limit means stop sinking at 50’! Slipping past 60’ should have reduced length of dive significantly. Second over-limits dive in 2 days!

  • E
Flag tangle problems! Flag got entwined with another buddy team. When we were ready to return, had to surface to untie the flags. Tried to return to depth, but we were so far from shore that we couldn’t see the bottom when we were at 20’ and had trouble keeping depth and a straight course.
61 08/16/97 Staghorn Cliffs, Skaneateles 2800 1300 12:00:00 PM 12:30:00 PM 40 65W 80A

Missed anchor. Noted depth of 13’. However, last night’s anchor was at 23’. Confused the two and looked the wrong way when passing anchor location. Also forgot to note current and current effects.

Seal followed us back. No watch meant misjudging legs of trip. Surfaced very close to lover’s point, had long surface swim (100m+) back to beach.
