    My thoughts and condolences to everyone affected by this incident.
    Been following this thread. It really hits home.
    I have had several folks that know how passionate I am about diving contact me about this incident, I'm half a continent away and know no one involved.
    But, lots of thoughts and prayers from places you would not expect.

    This has been on my mind constantly since I heard of it. I can't begin to imagine the horror of this tragedy. Both my wife and I pray for those left behind, that they find the strength to deal with this. God Bless.

    I've just learned that my friend, Xiang Lin, lost her life on board. I met Xiang at a mobile gaming event in Beijing many years ago. We quickly worked out that we both loved diving. The only thing we every disagreed about was that she liked to only dive an area once, whilst I believe that every dive on the same site is different. She dived all over the world and made friends wherever she went. Recently she contacted me to say she wanted to progress on to cave diving in Mexico. She was a happy, fun person, with a thirst for adventure. She will be missed.

    I met Marybeth Guiney at God's Pocket last year. Everyone there liked her, and from what I've read, everyone everywhere liked her. She talked Merry and me into signing up for a Galapagos trip, which we will be taking in January. I haven't been able to stop thing about her all week. I'm dreading the release of the other fourteen names.

    Santa Barbara held a vigil this evening in a park by the harbor. Coast Guard, Sheriff's Dept. divers, family members, many from the local dive community, and many others attended. SCUBA tanks with candles in front of them stood on the stage--one for each of the people who were lost. My heart goes out to all family and friends.

    Is there anywhere we could find a list of the names of the victims?
