    We dove Olympus a few weeks ago. 2 on the Caribsea the first day (lots of Sand Tigers) and the second day was on the U-Boat, then the Spar (strong surge on that one - and really BIG Sand Tigers). I dove on Olympus many years ago for about five seasons, and then many trips on the Pelican (sold a few years ago). Olympus is a very high quality operation. Capt Bob and his crew were great. There was even a Birthday party for Bud. I would highly recommend them. The boat is big, and it can be crowded, but nobody was really cramped at all. My only negative was my bands broke on my Riffe (hasn't been shot for a little while), which pissed me off. But there was no good grouper on the U-Boat. Couldn't hunt on the other wrecks with all the sharks. Can't wait to get back to Morehead City.

    WOW, that is a lot of havoc for a Category 1 storm. Raleigh certain came to a dead halt with Fran, but I'm not sure what strength that was by the time it made it's way inland, my guess was a 1. We were powerless for a couple of weeks. Sinkholes on major thoroughfares, etc.

    Seems that a number of Category 1 storms have hit the coast down here and not done too much damange.

    Mother nature is in charge for sure.

    Yeah, Fran was a Cat 1 when it went through Raleigh. I was living in a neighborhood close to downtown at the time and my power was out for a week. Massive flooding and huge oaks and pines down everywhere. At the end of my street, two massive oaks came down, completely blocking the street with the power and phone lines completely wrapped up in them.

    IIRC, it was a Cat 3 storm when it hit the coast.
