We went out today with Captain Dalton. We made 2 dives on the Chevron. The wind was a little chilly heading out, but gearing up wasnt that bad. The thermocline was pretty chilly, is was mid 50*F's on the way down to about 70ft. After that it got a little warmer. Near the bottom wasnt horrible, my computer clocked 62*F at 125ft. The safety stop, on the other hand, was awful. sitting on the line not moving in those temps were not so fun. There was little surface current, but down on the bottom was nothing. Everyone had plenty of neoprene, however I think this time next year I might retirethe 3/2mm I wore today. The was actually a thick layer of slime that made the entire dive dark. It started getting really dark around 75ft. We had about 40ft of vis on the first dive, near then end of the second dive it dropped down to about 20ft.
