    It would be easier to put a spit hose on it then to file it. Maybe.

    I can't get there B 4 5/28. I'm hoping to get down there with Ramfan (my son) and meet up with Blue Water Diving. :D

    But all of that is tentative.

    Just leave those areas alone for about a year, the salt water will dull them. :wink:
    From what I've seen posted on this thread, it'll take a year of dives to just to get to that place on the wreck. :cool2:

    Safe diving is Fun diving. :lotsalove:

    I'm a doctor, I should know.... :rofl3:

    I took the tour yesterday and it brought back memories of my short stint in the Navy, and reminded me that was 35+ years ago. I can't wait to see it again weightless and with fins, instead of heavy and wearing steel toe boots. :)
    This ship is so huge it will take me years to get below 100 feet.

    Ya but that's what they said about the Spiegel Grove and the Oriskany. Yet you don't see recreational divers dying by the boat load on either wreck. Areas above 130 feet will be so sanitized for safe recreational diving as to be almost boring. Areas below that depth may be a little more interesting, if you've dived the Oriskany you know what I'm talking about. Then again the Mighty O sits in 212 feet of water so there is quite a bit of the wreck that lays below 130 fsw while the Vandenberg will only sit in 140 fsw so there won't be much down that deep to leave un-sanitized.

    I'm looking forward to diving this one as soon as I can. Make sure you post a good dive report if you get to it before I do.
