    July Tek Dives - Wets Palm Beach FL

    Post July 4th, had 3 Advanced Trimix students.

    Did 2 days on the Ande, 190ft in the sand. Cool on the bottom about 75F.

    Next day did the new wreck the Korimu, 230ft in the sand. Just put down early this year. Already has fish life on it. Viz all of 100ft plus, temp at 230ft was 70F, warmed up at 180ft at hte very top of the smoke stack on the stern.

    Last Saturday, did a 300ft drop south east of the Korimu looking for a debris pile, came across a new wreck during deco at 200ft while drifting north. 1 huge anchor and chain leads you right to it.

    This week went out Tue on the Ande again. Had 1 Trimix student along for the 1st 2 dives. Great drop, strong current on the wreck.

    Wed, we went back to the Korimu. Great viz water was about 65F. Took pictures

    Friday, we got the numbers for the new wreck, its the Sylvania, was put down in 2003. 280ft in the sand. Its 1000ft south of the Korimu and 500ft east out a little deeper on the ledge.
    I left my initials carved into the cargo deck at 270ft and on the stern deck :) There is a small boat sank mid ship with it. Took pictures. viz was 100ft, water temp at all of 52F. We had a 120min runtime...4+ knot surface current, drifted at least 5-6 miles north on deco. viz on decent and ascent was 20-30 ft from about 60ft down to 180ft, brown water, heavy whale snot floating.

    Boat captains had the spots well painted, did about .2 south drops, we had very little bottom current, maybe 2 minutes swim to hit the wrecks once on the bottom.

    Back out again the week of Aug 6th with Trimix students and a Trimix Instructor candidate.
