I have been rebuilding my computer and was glancing at some text files. I liked this, so I thought I'd post it.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
This is what Joe told me:
Shel came up to the boat and said that there was this bug with
eyes the size of golf balls, but it was back in a hole too small
for him to get to. I was smaller than him so he wanted tome to
work in and get the bug.
Shel, I and another diver went into a small cave at about 35 feet.
at its back was a small hole going further in. There was a nice sized
bug way back in it.
I got my tank off and went in, but just couldn't get far enough
back. We all went up again for what was our third strategy meet
and I said I thought I could get it if I took off my weight
We all went back down in the cave and I got off my tank and weights.
Unfortunately, I didn't have much air left. This time I could get
in further and was working towards the bug. I figured no matter how
far I got in, the other divers would eventually pull me out. I got
in a further and then I had to turn my head sideways and that let me
make it a bit further, but about this time, I got a squeeze
on my leg that meant low air. I kicked them off and worked just a
bit more in with both my hands over my head. It was totally black at
that point, but I got two hands on the bug and started kicking my
feet together. Shel and the other diver pulled me back, hand over
hand. It was 9 1/2 pounds.
