    Basically I got into scuba for fun and had a blast at it. I decided to go into it professionally.. I'm not a very professional type but it was calling. I was diving everyday for golf balls ..very shallow about 2 hours a day, and during the week and week ends I would get calls for emergency jobs on fishing trawlers for stuff wrapped around the wheel, lose wheels, a few had a breeched hull or needed an inspection after hitting something hard under water. Also searched for missing people, and body recovery. It got to the point it was like going in to a grocery store. Go in, get what you are looking for, and go home.
    Recently I talked my friend into trying it and the instructor said she could dive with me while they worked on getting her certs. She ended getting more dives in with me then the dive classes and I convinced to follow my advice with weights and finding good gear, and by time she was able to get her certification with no problem. So for now I'm retired and we are doing a lot of diving just for fun. Lol.
