Dove Bluewater Saturday. We had a good time. Not much to report, we just worked on weighting and trim and such. Did get a chance to go down to the sailboat. It was a little chilly down there and vis wasnt very good. Dropped about 10 lbs off my weight. I was really heavy during OW I guess. Down to 8 lbs now and hope to shed a few more in the near future. Looking forward to more dives to come and improving on my skills.
Good job! Not sure about in freshwater yet, but I went to the Gulf a few weekends ago and I ended up dropping about 4 more lbs, compared to when I get my OW dives at Blue Water. I'm not perfect with it yet, but I'm interested in seeing what I am like at Blue Water now.
What was the tempature by the sell boat? I'll be getting a long suit soon, maybe a 3/4. Not sure yet.
I dove a 3mm and was a little chilled. Temp at sail boat was probably around 65-70 I would guess. Would have been comfortably with gloves and hood I'm sure. Vis was really poor down there and couldn't see much.
