We headed out at 0800 again this morning and to a wonderful, not-so-well-known spot that has been kept a secret by all the local divers that are in the know. OK, it was just a spot in the sand near the Monitor. Nonetheless, conditions were good with minimal current and about 50 feet of visibility. We planned a 180 foot maximum depth for 20 minutes on air with EAN36 and Oxygen for decompression.

With the tune-ups completed, back on shore the team turned to filling and preparing for the first dives on the Monitor. The weather looks like it is going to get nasty tonight, so are not planning on diving tomorrow. Remember, If you have questions or comments about the project, just drop us an e-mail . . . and check in with us tomorrow!
