    on a related note tanks would be very cool

    I wonder if a fund could be started to help pay for the transportation?

    We had a great day diving the Scuba Park. Six of the Tulsa Aquanauts made it out to find the Helicopter. And it is very cool! There is a large hole cut in the top, you can enter there, and exit out the large side door on the starboard side, or out the larger bay door at the back. I was able to find all the attractions in the scuba park to show a few who had never dove there. Lee and I wore a 3mm full suit, Keith wore a shortie, I only went as deep as 57' it was 72 degrees at that depth. The vis today was maybe 5' to 25' deep. There is a mild thermocline at 30' and another at 40'. After 25' the vis started opening up a little, we had 10 to 12' vis at about 40'. The temps were a lot warmer than Beaver, 82 at the surface and only 72 at 57 feet. It was nice to be able to dive in only a 3mm and no hood. If you get a chance to dive the Scuba Park I would recommend it. And thanks DJ, it was right where you said it was.

    Wow! 72 @ 57' is not fair at all lol We dove Beaver on Saturday and we had 89 surface about 85 down to the thermocline between 25-30' where it dropped to about 64. As I don't have a suit yet I was forced to stay just above the TC while my buddies dropped a little below it.

    But, the visibility is usually much better at Beaver. And it is one of the most abrupt thermoclines of any of the lakes I have dove in.

    I shot some more video of the helicopter Saturday and added it to what I had

    quality is not good due to juggling two lights and a camera and the vis was poor 10'

    on a more positive note the dive light I built didn't leak
