It's clearing up a bit out on the San Pedro shelf. In the general vicinity of the rigs, you have a cloudly particulate mix from the surface down to about 80. Below that you have nice clean 52F water with about 25-35 ft vis.

The fathometer showed a large structure covered in fish. We dropped the anchor about 40' from it. There was no wind or current and we found the chain and anchor in a pile on the sand (confirming the no wind/current statement above). There was the occasional piece of debris and we found a couple of 2' tall metridiums just sitting in the sand. The vis was at least 30'. How the hell did we miss the wreck? Could it have been that our helium was past it's expiration date and had lost some of its narcosis reducing properties??? Oh well, it isn't going anywhere and it'll give me something fun to think about until next week :-)
