I ALMOST HAD IT . . . .
There I was, at the end of the day, BS'ing with Ray in the wheelhouse of the Mr. C. I don't even think I was on his boat that day but thats where I was, drinking...... Sprite.
He's showing me pictures of ships and artifacts, we talking wrecks, and as he's locking up I touched it.
The HOLY FRIGGING GRAIL, his GPS unit. It said Leica on it, and belive you me, I said I lik-a you too Mr. little tiny cute GPS unit filled with numbers. I picked it up, then I tried to leave, and thats when the hand of death touched my shoulder.
From the height of Wreck Diving Nirvana to the depths of hell all in five seconds.
I almost had the damn thing. I figured if I made it off the boat, he's shoot. I figured if I made it to the parking lot my odds were 50/50.
I was willing to risk it.
Thats my job.
I am a wreck diver.
