Another great thursday night work dive. Algae was long and the eels seemed a bit restless. Water temp a whooping 54 deg and vis was as always- crystal clear - bottom time 1:35 mins depth- 24 ft.

 I was in the full face mask tonight and steve tended topside working the hydro vac (it worked well for a while until I sucked a rock - it is still not dialed in by any means!)- Kenny from life support went in and worked on the tickler jets- all already have to much growth to allow them to be adjusted to each kelp plant and stay properly adjusted.

I scrubed the nose front and back - part of the island - part of the surge tube. There is a lot of work to be done in there!

 I really like FF mask - it is super comfortable and cant wait until music can be pumped in during work dives! We are getting 3 or 4 and the wireless for the boat for sure!

We should try and see if that underwater signaling device is effective from diver entrance. Not sure how well it will work with a hood on.

Heading to the Mojave desert to collect lizards for our exhibits this weekend! Super pumped!

Captain - over and out.
