If I am not mistaken Bill Stone was the rival of the WKPP team of JJ when they both took a bid for the project to map Wakula Springs. There is supposedly some strong rivalry between the 2 groups.
Scheck on the other hand wrote the book on Cave Diving. During the early years of Cave Diving the fatality rate was so high that Scheck took time out to sit down and write a book on the basics of the sport. After the book was published, the fatality rate went down by more than half. The man has passed away in a cave diving accident but he is a legend in the cave diving community.
btw spoon, since you love tech, Im reading this book now shadow divers, its about the discovery of a mystery U-boat in the Atlantic by wreck divers. Its a nice read.
I'm currently reading that book as well. So far, its a fascinating read. You probably know this already, both Chatterton and Kohler hosts a show called Deep Sea Detectives in the History Channel. Its a great show, imo.

guys i have made up my mind to check out the wrecks of the Philippines, as of the moment subic is on the list but i am sure there are much more lying around. battleships and galleons are what i am interested in. any info would be greatly appreciated.
Getting back to the original thread, it seems that all the suggestions I've read on this subject seem to indicate that most WWII wrecks are well passed rec limits. I haven't been to Truk but I hear that most of those wrecks are not.
Don't we have any UW grate sites within 130 feet? Or have is the RP just unlucky to have deep waters all around it?
