Ahoy Gaskin!

Well, Steve had to work today, and Carm’s Steve was DM’ing stuff, so Carm and I decided to go for a dive to the Gaskin! This was my first attempt at fitting two full kits in my lil dive car!

We found out that it works!!

Here’s a pic of Carm!

OO.. and I also found out that the super dive trunk will almost fit me too!!

We packed the gear and were off to Brockville. We had to stop at the Diver’s Candy Store (duhhh…) where I broke down and bought the 4th Element Xerotherm 200 g top. I already own the full set of Arctics, but I really liked the thinner stuff, so I just HAD to have it… I would have picked up the bottoms too, but they didn’t have my size… pffttt.. This means I will have to go back on a regular basis until they arrive…along with my Halcyon mask strap. Lol…

We finally made it to Centeen Park, geared up, and in we went. It took a little longer than normal to get to the wreck today, as the current had really picked up. Normally it doesn’t get too strong until about 50′, but today it started to rip a bit at 40′. We made it, and luckily it was surface interval time, in between the charters, so we had the wreck to ourselves. We did a circle of the wreck, and I found a small round bottle on the port side. Nothing old or fancy, just a little brown bottle.

*Insert brown bottle pic here tomorrow!*

There were quite a few fish on this side of the wreck as well. We swam around the stern, then did a pass through the wreck, and headed back. The trip back is always a bit quicker, as we are moving with the current. We had a nice, relaxing dive!

Bottom Time ~ 56 mins.
Max. Depth ~ 69′
Water Temp. ~ 67
Vis. ~ 20′ – 30′

After gearing down, a few other divers pulled up for a class in the shallows. There was one fella diving out of a Mini!!

He even asked me if I wanted to sit in it!!

What a fun day!! We ended the evening with some dinner at Swiss Chalet…MMM.. Cheesy Garlic Loaf!!

At least one more dive tomorrow! w00t w00t w00t!!

Very Cool!

I like the look of your new blog also! For quick and easy, just doing a copy/paste from ZD will retain the photo links (at least it did for me!)
