Default Jacksonville (Mayport) 7/8

Left out of Jax today and made 4 dives.

The first dive was the most eventful. Dove a big wreck called the Anna. Vis was poor and current was ripping top to bottom. Barracuda central. I lost the anchor rope and had to make a free ascent. I couldn't control my ascent with the current and came up from 105 to the surface way too quick. I ended up what seemed like over 100 yards from the boat.
On the 3 subsequent dives I hung out at 20 feet for much longer than the usual 3 minute safety stop to try and curtail any problems from coming up too fast.
The group ended up with a couple of slipper lobster, some flounder, grouper and cobia. (I struck out)

Anyways, it's almost 9:30 here and no sign of any deco problems. I think nitrox and the long stops may have helped, but I'll find out for sure tomorrow.

Hope you avoid the DCS!
I've had some really good yet unproductive dives, as long and everything goes well but the killin part, I'm all good. Gotta hate a free assent but I'll take that over going into deco any day.
Fingers crossed for ya...
