Hi Chuck,

I disagree with the non-divable premise. Maybe there were days when an argument could have been made to stay home but nearly every weekend has been diveable if you wanted to get wet. I've missed two weekends this year and only one was weather related. It hasn't always been ideal but there's also been some good diving on days when the forecast looked awful. Saturday was just fine for instance and we dove both Carmel and Monterey.

None of this involved doing anything remotely unsafe or unwise. Some of it did involve diving in bad vis and/or surge and there were some bumpy boat rides. But there were also some really nice dives on days when everyone else was canceling. Gotta want to dive.

Probably the best example was this day. The boat cancelled due to weather. My friend Vanessa had a Lobos reservation and wanted to dive but her buddy backed out. So we went diving. And it looked like this. When everyone else was staying home complaining about the weather.

Here's the list for the year:

March 17 - East Pinnacle, Hopkins Deep Reef
March 12 - Fanshell Beach Pinnacles, Outer Pinnacles
March 11 - Lobos
March 3,4 - Didn't dive but weather was actually good.
February 25 - Mile Buoy and Mating Amtracks
February 18 - Lobos
February 12 - Lobos
February 4 - Outer Pinnacles and Ballbuster
Jan 29 - Lobos
Jan 28 - Cupcakes (Yankee Point not far from Alan's Arch)
Jan 22 - Weather Cancellation
Jan 14 - Point Sur Bank
Jan 7 - Outer Pinnacles, Anchors on the shale
Jan 1 - Midway Pinnacle
