I cannot help but be disturbed by the rancor on this board regarding which captain did what to who, etc. It is my belief we in the local dive community should all feel blessed that we have such GREAT and commited local area boat owner/captains who, without much of a financial incentive, supply us with world class diving and excellant food too. How many of us have never made a mistake at work? How many of us have slaved away for three days, almost with no sleep, to insure a flawlessly executed dive trip for twenty five, complete with meals, great dive sites, air fills,lobster catching, housekeeping, and herding of many not so safety minded or experianced divers? Who of us would assume the risk inherent in such an endeavor? Darn few of us would do so, and of those who say they could or would, few would last but one season before they threw in the towel. So let us move on, and focus on the grandeur and greatness of the opportunity open to us in our local waters thanks to the toil of our great captains. Thanks to guys like Ray, Tim, Dave, Greg, Arnold, and Thanks to the Great Pacific for being there to make our lives that much richer.

Leave the mud at home for the landlubbers to sling!
