Just a short message as I am back off on charters and will send Chris the pics later. But over all I think the trip went very well. Vis was over 100' with little current. The only problem was I had to keep the boat within 10' of the rigs so the video crew could work. Kendel on the line and we live boated a tyed up boat. Only came within a foot or two a couple of times. Thank god there were almost no swells. The camera team went in first and stayed about an hour, then the guests, and they had a great time. Had some heavy hitters on board including the director of F&G. He was very impressed and enjoyed himself. Hopefully this will be repeated in the spring and the rigs will stay.
Don't know where or when this video will show, but many divers including Elaine, Kathy, even Chris, along with others have taken very good pics and videos of the rigs, check them out.
