This is to help us get a better idea of what everyone wants, and how to split costs........

I'm good. I would not be able to make it until mid afternoon on Saturday though. Let me know if we want to organize a crawfish boil.

Dark Wolf
01-31-2010, 21:33
That sucks,skdvr!

Brojack, yes I think we do. I will also be bringing my spear gun. Maybe we can have some fish to do up, as well!

I voted diving boat and shore but it mainly depends on the final cost of the boat rental.

I will do boat only since we can hit all 3 sites that way. And I will be there for only that day since we have a newborn and 3 yr old at home :smiley29:.

What day is the plan for the boat dive sat or sun?

I have a medical support obligation that I can't get out of that weekend. dammit!

Dark Wolf
02-01-2010, 12:59
Damn, that is too bad navy. I will take plenty of pics for ya, though!

I think we should plan the boat dives for Saturday, unless anyone has objections to that day.......................

I am in and my 13 year old is in. However, I MAY not be able to do Sunday as I might have to fly on Monday. That is still up in the air though. If someone else would be interested in going down on Thursday morning to dive Thursday and Friday as well I might be up for that. Send me an email at [email protected]

I feel dumb, but what does DDCN stand for? I just saw the word dive and said, "I'm in".

I am now planning on taking the day off that Friday & come down early to dive Friday & Saturday. I may be able to do a dive or two on Sunday as well.

don't feel intimidated, we can and will accommodate everyones diving ability. :smiley2:

it will definitly be dark and cold, how deep you want to go is up to you, and if you get narc'd is just a chance you always have to take.

Dark Wolf

Ok, have our room booked. We will be in the area on Thursday evening. Staying at the Pointe West Resort.

Saturday if we do the boat dive it will be at the marina. Time still undecided.

Count me in for the boat dive on Sat & a shore dive on Sun.

I won't get in until Fri pm, probably around 7pm. Staying @ CJ's

Trying to keep track of all who plan to attend & dive from the boat on Saturday the 17th. Looks like we have:
bottomdweller
bottomdwellers wife
Beach Bum
Dark wolf
417diver
brojack17
Vlane
DJbadfish
neogeo
plot/driving boat
flatliner
flatliners son
Shala
Maverick
wkndbum
jamiejo
kenny

17 so far, That leaves room for seven more before we would have to plan a way to drop off & pickup others who want to dive from the boat.

Dark Wolf
02-09-2010, 11:36
I spoke with La Croix on the phone. I think that him and his wife are coming, as well. Possibly one other.

02-09-2010, 11:57
I guess I forgot medicdiver also, that puts us around 20 people.

plot
02-09-2010, 13:13
Boat would probably hold 20 divers comfortably, I'm not sure it'll hold 20 gear bags plus 40-60 tanks or whatever you guys plan on bringing though. :smiley22:

During the SI we can go back to the marina for more gas... or with some organization we can have someone park a bunch of tanks at the bluffs or somewhere easily accessible.

417Diver
02-09-2010, 14:56
That boat will hold enough fuel for all 3 stops easily. I only saw 13 votes for the boat dive. Are all the people you posted Frank going on the boat?

bottomdweller
02-09-2010, 15:09
I am pretty sure that everyone That I listed will want to dive from the boat. I imagine we will get a few more people before the time gets here.
I know Beach Bum & my wife didn't vote that makes 15 jamiejo & her husband only voted once for two more people. medicdiver said he is coming in another thread not sure if he voted for the boat or not?

neogeo
02-09-2010, 15:41
I bet people will decide on the boat that day too... but we need to get a nice iteneray itinerary set up so people know what the game plan is

plot
02-09-2010, 16:09
by gas i meant back gas. so we dont have to tow a raft full of tanks. :D

bottomdweller
02-09-2010, 17:09
Oh ya flatliner & son, one vote two people.
I like the idea plot had, maybe get some people to drive down by the bluffs & park with loads of tanks in the vehicles. We can go back & fourth to pickup people & tanks.
What night are we doing a night dive? Maybe Friday night dive Saturday crawfish boil? I'm open to anything & i'm easy too...

bottomdweller
02-09-2010, 17:11

Now theres an idea, maybe rent another boat for tanks:smiley36:

417Diver
02-09-2010, 17:42
Bah.. All the gas will fit on that boat. I think there were 30 tanks on the trip we were on and there was still plenty room left.

Itinerary definatley if the boat gets to full. Possibly those who want to hit the wall 1st we could take a group there 1st and drop them off at the shore there by the parking lot. And then go grab the other team from the dock and take them to site B. Then when done take the group from B to the wall and that group from the wall to B. Then you will have a few people who are done and want to eat lunch or whatever. You can take a trip to site C by the bus and foundation since its a short dive.

Just a suggestion though and seems to keep the crowd moving.

Dark Wolf
02-09-2010, 17:59
I am more than willing to have dive tanks in my car for the pit stops at the bluffs.Would also be willing to drive to C and J to get fills for anyone who wants them. Night dive Friday night sounds great to me, but I am also open to suggestions.

As for the tanks all fitting, they very well may fit. But you get many divers diving doubles and deco bottles and the room evaporates very quickly.

02-09-2010, 19:05
Ya hopefully no one is diving doubles for these dives. :smiley5:

I am still trying to talk the wife into letting me stay overfriday night for the night dive. :smilie40:

Vlane
02-09-2010, 19:26
I may have one or two other divers with me who would boat dive but I can't say 100% for sure yet. If we have the boat from 9-5 I'm guessing that would be enough time to make 2 trips and have 2 stops per trip but there probably wouldn't be much lag time.

Oh there wil lbe doubles!!!!

plot
02-09-2010, 20:31
Quite a few of us dive doubles :D

I won't need anything besides my one set though, it should last me for both boat dives I want to do.

Dark Wolf
02-09-2010, 20:51
Yes, I predict that there will be several sets of doubles. And probably deco bottles, as well......

I may be heading over but will have to wait till closer to that time to see. Once again, Navy, my wetsuit buddy is abandoning me. Will anyone else be diving wet?

I may or may not dive wet, entirely depends on how much I want to dive my doubles. You can dive Beaver in a 7mm with a hood pretty comfortably most of the year.

02-10-2010, 13:18
Beach Bum & myself will be diving wet!!!
