I thought I would write something in the forum as I have not been on here for a rather long time due to a very busy dive season and various other things. I did not do much diving this season, but I did learn a lot. I had the fortune of getting a job as a deck hadn with a company that operates 5 dive boats in the St Lawrence and when I was not working at my real job I was out on the water. I was fortunate in that the other staff and owners were great, and I quickly went from loading gear to getti...

We checked in in the midst of a torrential down pour then headed over to the unload gear. Big adva...

So I am sitting here this morning planning my trips down south once the cold weather hits. Mom and Dad have booked a condo in Pompano Beach FLA over Christmas and have invited me along all expenses paid, my parents are awesome. Let this be a warning though to those with young kids, I am 35 and still get mom and dad to take me on trips, LOL. Plan on doing at least a couple of days of diving while down there. Trip number two. Upon returning from FLA I will work 3 shifts then turn around and head t...
