HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Bob Meistrel!
This founder of Dive'n'Surf and Bodyglove Wetsuits turned 80 years young today! Awesome!

Bobby has been a pioneer in the dive industry forever, he's still a mentor and friend to many! and a hell of a FUN guy! I've had the great priveledge of diving with Bobby from the B.G. Boat, and debating with him over the years about Abalone outplanting, intra marina clean ups, offshore drilling, Etc., Bobby's sharp, he doesn't miss much!!

Today, Bobby wanted to dive Vintage Gear down to 100' plus for a treat. The Palawan reef (not a shipwreck) is where they headed. Twin 35's?, a freshened up double~hose rig (Thanks Jocko), a depth guage, bottom timer and beaver tail. How Cool is that?!!!

Hats off to Bob! and many more years of bottomtime to him!!!

If you have a message for Bobby, leave it here and I'll forward it with pleasure.
