    FRIDAY NIGHT
    NORTH WINDS 10 TO 15 KNOTS. SEAS 2 TO 4 FEET. BAY
    AND INLAND WATERS A MODERATE CHOP.

    SATURDAY
    VARIABLE WINDS 5 TO 10 KNOTS. SEAS AROUND 2 FEET. BAY
    AND INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.

    SUNDAY
    SOUTHWEST WINDS AROUND 15 KNOTS. SEAS BUILDING TO 3 TO 5
    FEET. BAY AND INLAND WATERS A MODERATE CHOP. SLIGHT CHANCE OF
    SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.


    The above forecast (which is supposed to deteriorate) leaves me thinking I don't want to chance running into weather like I did a week ago that far offshore, especially with 5 divers and gear on board a 21' boat.

    I think I'm going to change this to the Rainbow river backup dive trip like I have mentioned in "TBAD Part4". I'm sorry if I have disappointed anyone, But I just don't want to get in over my head like I almost have before. (see, i can be taught) Look at the bright side, we can go as a much larger group now.

    I can pack another diver with me in my truck, and if anybody who wants to come doesn't have a ride I'll try to find someone to squeeze you in with.

    Who's with me............

    Count Me in. I can fit another Diver although I will be driving the Grand Marque instead of the explorer. (anyone want an explorer Cheep? )

    I am in Land O' Lakes / Westly Chaple area.

    Sounds to me like a perfect excuse to get a bigger boat :D

    Ok, we are up to 5 divers now. Just a thought. if you all want, we can do a drift dive on the Rainbow river, then pack up and head to any of the nearby rivers/springs for a second dive.
