    My DPV floated away from just south of Villa Blanca last night. : (

    Cap visible a few inches above the surface, floats vertically. Current heading north. Return would be amazing!!!

    Li ion battery on board, ideal if a boat doesn't hit it. I've notified the port captain and talked to a few of the shops and boat captains too.

    Shout out to Salty Endeavors for sharing my loss to the dive shop group too.

    A variety of theoretical models has been proposed to explain why salvo mojo must begin their international migration.

    One suggestion is deep within their lithium cells, they all have the urge to return to the Cadillac Hotel.

    (and wow, it feels horrible losing a scooter :( )

    Have you tried the couple cases of beer down by the sailboat? Just a different kind of fish to catch...

    There was confusion as to who was tending it during predive gearing up in the shallows and it snuck off down current in the fog of war and dusk light. A good minute head start was all it needed to make the getaway.

    (A Salvo mojo scooter is infamous for burning down a hotel in Florida near cave country when the LiPo pack was charging.)
