Last Charter Of The Season

26 11 2008

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008 ~

I had planned a couple of charters for us and some friends, to head to the Jodrey one last time this year. We suited up in Jeff’s shop, as the air temperature was a balmy -13 with the wind chill ~ a tad bid chillier than our recent dives in Mexico.

We loaded up the boat and we were off to the Jodrey. Steve, Jay, and Oren were a team, and I was diving with Warren. We dropped down the wall, and reached the crow’s nest. Wow… the vis. was wicked! I’ve only done this wreck a few times, but this was a treat! We noticed that someone had run some kind of line across the wreck. It wasn’t exactly in the best of places, so we had to make sure we didn’t get caught in it. We swam around the bow, checking out where Steve and the boys had visited, and Warren got some great shots!

During deco, we saw more fish than we normally see, and the water temp was pretty tolerable, even though the air was frosty!

We had a most excellent dive!

Run Time ~ 76 mins.
Max. Depth ~ 170′
Water Temp. ~ 48
Vis. ~ Wicked!

Surface shots… We all looked like Stay Puff Marshmellow people, in our masses of winter undies!

The air was a bit chilly, but the water was warmer, and being amongst friends on such a great dive, was a great way to spend the day!

It was actually nice to see so many stars in the sky. Thanks for the evening cruise, Jeff!
