The transition from to destroyer to creator, something to be proud of.

Two dives today from the six pack hydrodiver. There was one other boat with three divers that did one dive and then it was all ours. 95' was the deepest I could get without a shovel, 50 degrees with 20' vis.

I swear there is kelp growing from the starboard edge that sticks up, whether it can get a good holdfast going only time will tell. I noted white to yellowish tube type sponges about 4" length, other sponge growth started and algea everywhere. Bass, Blacksmith, one either small Treefish or Painted greenling. It's amazing how this near desert sandy area is making a transformation to reef like.

I heard a rumor that the Navy may as a training exercise upright the ship to rest as planned. I would agree with this plan if it was to commence before too much time passes. It is easy to get disoriented the way the ship rest on an angle, plus half the exits are blocked.
