    Hydro Trip Report 5/1/2010

    This morning a few of us went out with Capt. Oliver on the Avid Diver for a light technical dive on the infamous Hydro Atlantic. The water was a little choppy with about 4 foot waves and a fair amount of wind.

    The divers were Jeff and Daniele Addis (remember the Addis charter trip reports), Kim, Myself, and a couple of other guys. The other guys were OC, so they don't even count as divers.

    Oliver had a bit of trouble hooking the wreck today. Of course he blamed it on us for letting him get "rusty" since we hadn't chartered him and his boat in so long. Well, what do you know, after 2 failed attempts he realized that it is very hard to hook a wreck in 170' of water with 150' of line. Needless to say, he added another section of line and hooked it the very next time.

    The OC guys went in first. Then the RB divers. I buddied up with Kim and Jeff stayed with Danielle. I followed Kim down the line and we immediately dropped into on of the holds and began to find the tightest and darkest places in the wreck. We were all over that thing from the skylights and elevator shaft to the engine room.

    Kim found one spot that was a bit too snug for her with 2 AL 40's for BO and I had to show her how to do it with 2 AL 80's. At that point she had no choice but to follow me through. Her boyfriend needs to do some better instruction in the 3P of diving (Proper Penetration Protocol) as I felt very guilty to have to do it myself. Enjoyed, but guilty at the same time.

    At 27 minutes I gave the thumb signal and we returned to the line do begin our ascent. Deco was uneventful, but Kim did get a bit cold in a wetsuit. We hit 65 degrees in the engine room. I was very happy to have been in my new drysuit.

    My legs cramped up awfully bad on the short swim to the boat and I couldn't walk up the ladder with both my BO tanks. Hell, I couldn't do it after I handed one of them to Oliver. It was all I could do to drag my sorry butt up the ladder with just my rEvo on my back. It might be time to do some work on my legs?????

    We all went out for lunch after the dive. I was such a truley awesome dive buddy that Kim bought my lunch. I must be doing something right.

    Look at it like this: Looking at Kim's butt for 30 minutes vs. looking at your butt??? Kim is gonna win every time, sorry dude.

    Pure and simple logics.
