To The Kinghorn!

25 11 2007

Sunday, November 25th, 2007 ~There were a whole gang of us at Rockport today. Myself, Steve, Francois, Carmen, Steve S, Blake, Jeff, Oren, James Y, Derek, and Martin K went for a swim to the Kinghorn! There were video cameras everywhere, so I didn’t bring mine along. I was out to test my new suit again! We had a most excellent day, and alot of fun!


When we made the swim back, and were at 30′, I seemed to have a bit of trouble dumping the air from my suit. I was contorting my arm like some crazy ol’ disco dancer, but to no avail. I reached over and rechecked the dump valve, and it had closed a bit. Open sesame… burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp… there it goes! This valve seems much more sensitive to turning, so I’ll have to keep an extra ear to the ground, and make sure I check it often. Once the valve was open, it was clear sailin’! I did check it previously, but it seemed to make it’s own way, just a hair.

I cannot stress how satisfied I am with this suit. I’m really not trying to sound like a commercial, but … ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…. really… it was worth it. I’m one happy camper. I’m a happy DUI Dog owner! RUFF!!

Bottom Time ~ 62 mins.
Max. Depth ~ 90′
Water Temp. ~ 42
Vis. ~ 70’+

We all went for lunch and laughs afterwards. Alot of fun, and good to see a few people that I haven’t seen in a while!

Until next week at the Gaskin!! Ahoy~~
