Just got home and looked at the BBS to see if any heard what, if anything happened yesterday to the missing diver off of Farnsworth Banks. I'll back track first. Yesterday while coming home from the front side of Catalina Coast Guard was issuing a "Pan-Pan" alert as to a missing diver. The dispatcher said that a diver that was is in all black, except for 2 silver tanks was missing at Farnsworth and for all boats in the area to keep an eye out for the diver. This alert continued until I returned to 22nd Street Landing. I am still hoping that the diver is down current.
As I stated, it just got home and read the BBS. "Sit Back and Watch the Show". What kind of statement it that? It is very likely that someone has just lost their life. I think they deserve much more respect than this. Please wait to see what has happened before jumping to conclusions.
