    Dutch, you have me on dive history but I beat you to retirement by few years. I'm a newbie not quite ready to come out of my water closet until I get my bouyancy and weight and trim a little better under control. I live in Rockwall and will soon be looking for a buddy to put up with me at CSSP or Athens. I'm checking email from Sea Wolf Park in Galveston as I volunteer chipping paint and working on these lovely old ships down here. Heading home tomorrow, tired and sore. I did get the OW cert. last month and can't wait to get in some salt water.
