    Dear Devjr:

    Whoops! I guess I was referring to the diver described by Vettster. I mixed up the stories. Nonetheless, you did have quite a trip!

    Given the first half of the day when I was freediving, the trip was shaping up great. Among other things, I speared what I believe is a world record Cero Mackeral. I didn't weigh it but it was 3 feet long, fork measurement. I have pictures.

    Some day when I'm motivated, I'll give you a blow by blow description of the pain, numbness, paralysis, sweats, chills, chamber treatments, learning to ignore docs who said I could be paralyzed for life, and the aftermath. Might scare somebody safe. Oh, I forgot, that's only weenie diving.

    Gotta go, joggin' now; oh yeah, "Da Benz"? That was the name of a boat parked at Cat Cay. Turns out it belonged to one of the chamber attendants. A 40 footer, business must be good.
