    9/16 I Meet Two Friends Of Mine At The Blue Hole In Glencoe Alabama , Which Is An Old Flooded Quarry With Max Depths Around 150 Ft.

    The First Dive Was Really Cool We Max Out At 120 Ft. And Water Temps Were A Bit Chilly After The A Harsh Thermo Cline It Went From The 70s To The Lowwwww 50s. We Spent Most Of Our Bottom Time Around An Old Ski Boat. Vis. Was About 50-60 Ft. Great Experience.....

    The Second Dive Was To A Sunked 18 Wheeler Trailer Which We Quickly Passed And Eased A Little Deeper To Check Out Some Rock Formations And Local Marine Life. There Was Alot Of Large Brim And Bass And One Extremly Large Cat Fish We Discovered In Another Sunken Boat. Max Depth Was 71 Ft. And Vis. Was Still 50-60 Ft. Hope To Dive It Again Soon Had A Great Time.....

    I bet even MDB would dive there. It would remind her of home. Heck, she could wear the drysuit without being laughed at (as much).

    my body, while around the waistline is becoming more cold friendly, is not really insulated well enough for such temps without more neoprene than 3mm

    If you want to dive Glencoe, better hurry. The place is for sale and there are rumors that the current owner/operator is planning to shut it down beforehand.


    BTW... we'll be diving a 50' vis quarry this weekend with bottom temps of 76 below the first thermocline and 68f on the bottom at 45 to 55'

    What *HE* said... And the name is... ?

    Btw, for those of you local to Ga/Tenn... Loch Low-Minn had about 50ft. viz this past weekend, with the surface around 82F...perfecto...

    We hear they're getting in their paddlefish next weekend... Nothing like diving with the dinosaurs...
