Default New Diver (everybody look out:) and Vis/Fish Report

Well, I finally made the plunge and got certified. Completed it today on the Mass. Who says you can't train a fisherman to dive.



Visibility was good (but what do I know) at 25+ feet.



My dive buddy saw 2 large red snappers in the turret but they ran for the hills when they saw a newbie diver spewing bubbles all over the place. Hopefully one day in the future I will run into Mr. Snapper again (with a pole spear in hand). Saw a lot of little black snappers as well.



Anyway, fun dive on the Tech Rec. Next trip will be a little deeper and hopefully fishier.

Congratulations Allen, welcome to my addiction! It wasa pleasure to train someone as highly motivated and naturally talented as you!

Well, I have to admit I did some research to find Chris. I basically asked around town who the best instructors were. You (Jerry) came with very high marks. I then thought to myself, I wonder who taught the "best of the best". That was evidently Chris so I booked the class.



I will admit, it was a little odd being taught to dive with a walker oke but heck, what do I know. Chris can still get around a wreck although, I was whipped after 30 minutes and he was just getting started.
