Most of my dives on this wreck involved poor visibility. I've had some as poor as just a few inches. I was invited to dive with the Ocean Defenders aboard the Clearwater. I hoped to find better conditions today.

We arrived onsite to find calm seas and blue water. I could see at least forty feet down the line. I was going to shoot video on the first dive, so I was excited at the prospect of getting some good footage, especially after watching Kurt Lieber's video from last week. It wasn't to be.
We hit the sand before we saw it. Visibility on the wreck varied from two feet to less than one. Greg Cooke thumbed the dive after about five minutes. We'll try again next Saturday. I never realised how much netting was on the wreck until today. I only covered about twenty feet, but it was covered by at least three types of net.
Thanks to Kurt Lieber, Jim Lieber, Don Robarge, Greg Cooke, Jeff Conner, Bob and Viria Walls and Cyber the dive dog for the effort.
