yeah, it was expanding my limits a little, but there's simply no way I am going to spend all weekend kicking like a savage at Point Lobos and see about 1/10th of 1% of whats there.

I've done that dive a bunch of times on OC, and have some shallower CCR dives in the same area, so it seemed like a reasonable thing to do.
