    I got word back from Aquarius Divers. He has the two middle weekends in Aug open. (the 1st and the last are booked). Is anyone available for either of those weekends, either days, for a charter out to the St. Pete? His cost for fills is good (pm me for details). Not sure on the cost for the charter yet. The dates would be Aug 13, 14 20, 21. Let me know whos interested and I'll set the charter up.

    For more info on the St Pete. See:

    Also I know Rhonda has done it a bunch of times, go bug her!

    Update: Dwight's boat can hold 6 people but the St. Pete isn't far from shore so he can go back and pick up others. $45 per person.

    If you've never dove the Pete before, this is a great dive. She's deep, but not horribly so--I've gotten about 116 in the mud. She's pretty much intact (the wheelhouse was ripped off when she sank) and she's sitting upright. Still has ropes and the bowsprit as well as most of the 6.5 tons of chestnut coal she was carrying when she went down in 1889.
    Here's a link to a site with more history and some pics.

    Let's do this!

    Let me know what weekend you choose so that I can put in for vacation to do the drive or just not to work. This sounds like just my speed :) and I would like to see the upstate NY gang again. Anyone know anyplace to stay in the area?

    Sounds good to me. As soon as I know that it is finalized, I'll put in the vacation request.

    Hi, Tavi.
    I don't know why not.

    I'll talk to Dwight about it tonight---we're heading for the Thousands Islands in a bit for a 4-dive day tomorrow. I'll let you know what he says.
