    I don't know, it sounds like the hidden costs of diving with Dan might be a little high for me...

    My bad luck continues btw. Today, I even got ousted from a quarry.

    If the motors are running right,
    and you need a good back to hold up if she gets up to warp drive, Love the story from the Door county divers thrill ride on the double D! she wont sink,but will take on water sounds like a blast & would love to see the video up on youtube Mike bailing!!

    Glad we all own our own dive boats I mean small armada. gas and insurance all added up with the volume of local and tow & dive trips still way ahead of the game & I get to pick with whom I dive or not dive with-and don't de kit to enter my or any of our other boat's IMO the most dangerous thing a novice diver can do on the Great Lakes 2 cents worth,

    Went out with Dan Johnson (Loves Park Scuba) on the Lockwood Exployer this summer. It was a good time. Dan and Lorri took good care of us. The boat is reasonably fast and is setup for diving. The boat is a little small but very workable. And yes, you can dive wet. We used 7mm one piece wet suits and were comfortable. I definitely recommend them for dives off of Milwaukee.:D

    I'm new to this board but not but have been on most of the charters mentioned they are all good charters and run good operations. But for my 2cents worth I believe that Divers Delight runs the best I not only like the speed of there boat but I also like taking the surface interval on shore which they always do because of the speed of there boat they also supply drinks,cookies and pretzels. They have a great saftey minded crew and Ralph is very expierenced Capt.
