    OK...We just got back from Matt's second trip out. He made two dives on Hens & Chickens.

    Dive 1 - 15 min. bottom time
    Dive 2 - 10 min. bottom time

    A very successful day for Matt and his team. Matt saw lots of coral, tons of fish, and even a baracuda. He had this BIG smile on his face the entire time.

    Thanks to all his supporters and well wishers.

    Good Diving,

    Cool! Hens and Chix is a great spot for a first ocean dive. I can't wait to see the pictures Matt!

    Way to go "Col. Matt Aquaman, the Tech Diver"...!! He got a commission from the Governor of Kentucky, and he is certainly an experienced tech diver.

    Sorry we couldn't find enough boats so we all could be there, so I could get in the water with you sometime, but I did what I could - more importantly, you gave it your all and mission accomplished...!! :thumb:

    Nice work Matt! I can't wait to see the pictures and the video!

    I know this trip has been years in the making- with lots of test dives and set backs. It's inspiring to see that you carried it through. Let's have a beer, I'd dive with you.

    I've been reporing daily to some non-diving friends, and one asked me what he'll do now? More diving I suppose...??

    He is truly inspirational to any & all who will notice that possibility, and it was a treat being with all the great folks the last few days.
