    HI everyone!

    I am heading to the Bahamas with the Blackbeard's crew in a couple of weeks. Just wondering if anyone has been on board lately? I was there over the 05-06 New Year and am looking forward to getting back.

    I took a group in September and we had a great trip. We made it down to Orange Key and got in plenty of dives for the week.

    Just returned yesterday. Spent last week on the Morning Star. The weather was cool and windy all week. We made it down to Cat Cay and the Bimini area. Daytime temp was 75 with a 20 knot wind all week. Water temp was 71-76. I wore a 3mm shorty with a 5mm full suit over it and was fine in the water. Coming out and getting changed in that wind was kind of cool though. We had sunshine almost all week and that helped. Our boat was full with 20 people on it and was the only boat that went out last week. We did 19 dives and 3 snorkels so the diving was not affected. The trip back from Bimini to Freeport Thursday afternoon/night was not fun. 12 hours of 4-5' seas with some 7 footers thrown in. It was a bouncy ride back across the Northwest Providence Channel. I'm going to try and get a trip report posted in the next couple of days.
