Dive reports don't need to be long and complex:

Surface conditions if notable.
Dive conditions: Vis, Temperature, Current, Surge
Anything unusual encountered
Link to pictures (having had a 250 kilobit link (I live a bit in
the boonies) until recently, I'm not a big fan of waiting for
pictures to download.

For example:
Subject: Conditions, Wed., April 25, 2012

I've got a day of comp time coming, let's go diving.

Launched at the Breakwater with Adm. Linda. It was REALLY flat,
at least for a while. "Why didn't we bring the water skis?" flat.
Full throttle all the way from the Breakwater to Ball-Buster flat.

We dropped the hook at Ball-Buster, but there was a ripping current.
The tag lines were almost horizontal and leaving a wake. So we
pulled the hook at went to the Steam Engine. 20' vis, 48F, a touch
of surface current, no surge. That sight has been seriously rearranged
by the hand of man, I'm guessing cruise ship anchor. I wend looking
for Linda's pet fringehead, but the couldn't find the pipe, maybe because
the steam engine was in a different place, maybe because the pipe got
moved. The high point of the dive was a free-swimming Spanish Shawl,
the first I've ever seen.

Second dive, Shale Island. 15', 48F, a touch of surface current, no
surge. Lots and lots of sculpins, including a Bull Sculpin and a couple
of Spotfin Sculpins. Linda found an octopus.

All in all a great day for photography. I can't remember the last time
I had 12 keepers from one day diving Monterey.
