    I have always felt safe on my multiple bug diving trips with Truth Aquatics. This is a horrific tragedy.. My heart goes out to those lost and their families. Also to the crew who I truly believe did all they could do.

    While I have not been on this boat I have been on other So.Cal boats that have similar guest quarters. There are most always two points of egress. The main one is the stairs but there is also one via a bunk to the top deck. I have never particularly liked that secondary egress because one has to crawl up into the bunk then out. Which might be fine under normal circumstances but not when all hell has broke lose.

    I haven't dove in several years so I haven't been here in quite a long time. This afternoon's news however drew me back as I'm sure there will be people here who know those involved. My deepest sympathies to the families of the lost, my hopes that they are found, and hopes that someone is found alive.

    We have only dived on one Live Aboard, though multiple times.
    I do not recall a single discussion of alternate emergency exits on the orientation for our trips, which reading of this tragedy is making me really think about the What If's!
