Question: Who would you like to go diving with and Why?

It can be someone famous,celebrity,inspiration,or just someone you know.....

My choice would be Jessica Alba!
Why? Ms. Alba is a Certified Diver and the scenery would be a bonus.

How about you?

I'd like to go diving with Barry Bonds so I could take him to the bottom and cut his air lines. Or on a positive note, I'd like to go with any of you! Ahhhh.

I prefer to dive in the company of more experienced folks so I can learn. A little osmosis goes a long way.

What about Tiger Woods (or) Greg Norman bothof them aredivers?
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>I would say golf has been very good to them.</DIV>
<DIV>Gee...I wonder if they could use a few new dive buddies? </DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Tiger Woods has a new Trideck Yacht called " Hull 026’s"</DIV>
<DIV>Rumored to cost around $20 million, this boat is 157 feet long and contains a mini-dive boat.</DIV>
<DIV>Located all the way aft on the top deck to starboard on Tigers boat,there aresix large helium tanks—a clue to just some of theequipment he has aboard. *Helium, when combined with oxygen and nitrogen, creates what is known in the scuba world as trimix—a breathable blend that lets you dive deeper than traditional tanks full of compressed air. Helium cannot be manufactured, hence the six tanks of it on Hull 026’s top deck. They are positioned to be lowered by crane to the lazarette, then used to fill divers’ tanks at a “gas blend” table there. The entire setup cost at least $150,000, according to the project engineer. </DIV>
<DIV>Tigers boat comes with a inflatable decompression chamber aboard, an important safety measure for divers who push deeper than the 120-foot recreational limit.</DIV>
<DIV>Now check this out!&gt;TigerWoods boat hasa 18-knot top speed with a 4,000-NM range.</DIV>
<DIV>
Greg Norman, 'The Shark' </DIV>
<DIV>Life must be tough for 'The Shark.' his dive boat is named 'Aussie Rules', which he helped design. At 69.5 metres (228 feet) in length, it's the world's largest aluminum and composite private yacht. He had it built for only $70 million dollars. The company meant to build it for him 'at cost' in return for the excellent advertising of having him as an
owner, but they actually lost money on it. When he first cruised into Sydney Harbor, onlookers remarked, 'It's massive!
Nearly three times the size of the ferries in the Harbor!'

In addition to being opulent, it is also built for Jacques Cousteau type fun and exploration. There is onboard diving equipment for 30 people including a decompression chamber and two huge compressors. Dives of all types can be accomplished by operating the Nitrox Mixing Panel onboard, enabling each guest's air tank to be customized with a mixture of gases.

To get the people out to those choice dive spots, or maybe just for having a bit of a splash, the following additional 'small' boats are kept onboard:

42-Foot Custom Built 'Game Fisher'
Can be launched and retrieved from the deck. Perfect for a 4-person overnight fishing expedition. Has a gourmet galley for cooking up the catch while it's still fresh.

30-Foot SeeVee for a quick afternoon fishing trip.

22-Foot Novurania Equator with a meager 800 horsepower so you can get to the best diving sites ahead of everyone else. It has beach landing capability as well.

(2) 18-Foot Hewes Bonerfishers for those special occasions when Greg and a close friend may wish to maneuver over the sand flats in Key West, Florida.

13-Foot Narwhal Rescue Boat in case someone falls off one of those other boats.

And finally, just for the hell of it, (4) Yamaha Waverunners!!!</DIV>

<DIV>I used to live in NYC and workout at Chelsea Piers...where the big shots park their yachts. Steve Forbes had the prime spot...his boat kept it's 2 speed boats, 2 motorcycles, and 1 full sized bell helo parked on deck 24/7. All he ever did was have parties on board...black tie affairs. To top it off, his grand bar (positioned astern) wasn't grand enough, so he had a giant italian marble bar commissioned. Which when completed, was so heavy the boat has a permanent list to stern of 10 degrees...but is looked pretty so he kept it.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>When you get to buildingthe bar of ST1, put it amidships.</DIV>

I'd like to dive with the North East divers. A few that stands out (on SB if you are not familiar with them) are Lynne (TSandM), Bob (Grateful Diver). Plus any of the other divers in that area and of course, I can't forget about the SoCal divers. I hope to get good enough to and be able to afford a trip out there for a week or two and do nothing but dive. :)

Would definitely have to go with Jessica Alba on that one. Diving with some of the diving greats would certainly be awesome but if I got enough money together I could probably swing a dive with them that way. No way I could put together enough money to get Jessica to dive with me.

Ok..call me a weirdo, but I'd love to do a dive with Ritchie Kohler and John Chatterton...I got to meet them at Beneath the Sea and they are the nicest guys I've met that were "psuedo-celebrities"

Other than that I hear Rush's guitar player dives...he'd be fun also!

I'd have thought your preference would be Prince Namor (Sub-Mariner for those unfamiliar with the works of Stan Lee). He could kick Aquaman's butt!
And Captain America can kick Batman's butt for that matter! Oh I digress...
