Be safe out there. I'm building a house for Habitat for Humanity.

Ended up just going on Sunday for our Nitrox Cert - classroom and then 2 short dives around 20 to 25 minutes - visibility is terrible - the rains we have received this spring has the place tore up - not to mention it was cold if you dropped below the thermocline

Last year at this same time, you had 10-15 feet of visibility in the shallow area til it was stirred up and 20-30 (sometimes more) feet below the thermocline and away from the training areas

Right now I would say is was 5 feet at best. Oh well - at least we got wet and are now Nitrox Certified for our upcoming Bonaire trip - tested out the new equipment and everything worked great - one comment from my wife stands out - she dove her new Zeagle Zena for the first time - while we were on the way home, I asked what she thought of her new BC, she said it felt good and she had no problems with it and whoever said that you get pushed over on your face at the surface by back inflates was not doing something right b/c she had no problems and this was her first time using it :)
