We got to Sea Ranch and I wanted to do a dive even though it was late and
it was supposed to be rough. I got to the water about 5 and it was hopping.
I headed out in a channel between two offshore rocky areas. It looked deep
enough to stay calm. Nothing was breaking in it in the short time I watched,
though there was something of a boil beyond it. I went down and found the
bottom at about 10 feet. It was where the sand was meeting the rock. A finger
of sand went into the rock about 2 feet. A little above it on the side was a
huge ab. I popped it and had trouble getting a grip on it. It was incredibly
fat and definately the biggest ab I've ever seen... The dive didn't go so good
after that..., but, hey, the diving was great.
The aluminum foil is packed solid against the shell and I scraped the shell
before I wrapped it. Now it's going to take a caliper to be sure, I think
this will end up being 10 1/16 inches at least.
Report to follow.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
The camera was about 3.5 feet above the ab when the pic was taken.
