I wish I had been there and seen it. With my luck I would have been playing with some stupid starfish and only heard about it after getting on board. I always miss the good stuff.

But if I came face to snout... I wonder how I would have reacted. My thoughts are that the screaming of the regulator (and collapsing of the cylinder) as I sucked in my "last gasp" of air would have frightened him away. And then I would have inhaled the little doohickies on the mouthpiece that I would have bitten off. Then I would be hospitalized for collapsed lungs caused by inhaling those little rubber plugs. I can hear them now. "He is in here from scuba diving injuries. It was something to do with an attack Shark -- or Panic, or something."

Still it would be a great story to tell.

And since the boat is delayed again, all I can do is retell my sea stories. Today it failed its sea trial with a power steering cylinder failure. Maybe it is destined to become an artificial reef for the CA Wreck divers to strip, er, uh, recover. Yea that's it, recover and preserve.
