ODA divers took the recovery vessel Clearwater out to Long Point (Marineland) Saturday. Easy dives and some new methods of lifting were planned. Chris Aultman, chopper pilot for Sea Shepherd also made some close flybys by helicopter for some ODA promo footage. Kinda cool.

On the way out we spotted the Trump Wreck somewhat intact and up on the beach @ the golf course, now that's a large beach clean-up.

The Point was a mind numbing 49* degrees, I had an ice cream headache. We had about 15' Feet'o'Vizz and found a trap at about the 15 minute mark at about 45 fsw, floated a buoy to mark it and turned around. We then found and marked another heavy metal trap base and headed for the boat. Kurt shot some video of the beautiful wild life around the pinnacles, second dives were recovery dives. What a great day on the water.
