    DoveBeavertail in Jamestown RI last Sunday. My friend Mike and I made our firstdive at Ft. Wetherill touring the East side of West Cove, which was a good dive but got a little crowded towards the end. An acquaintance I have seen up there a number of times suggested diving Beavertail and looking at the swim though off of parking lot three. I was a little wary because the swell there can get hairy (having already taken out Moe and Curly). despite being an exciting shore entry, Mike and I decided ...
