    Hot drop the RBJ (video)

    Today Kim, Jeff, Adrian and myself boarded Avid Diver charters and headed out to the wreck of the RBJ. The wreck site is actually 2 wrecks in one - the Ronald B Johnson sits on top of the wreck of the Corey N Chris at a 90 degree angle in 265 feet of water off the Pompano Beach coast. It is an awesome dive site. There is a really cool swim through, where you can swim under the hull of the RBJ where it sits on top of the Corey N Chris.

    It was overcast, and seas of 2-4 with waves from multiple directions. As Oliver said, it was like being in a washing machine, however the water looked blue as we geared up.

    GPS showed 1.5-2 knots of current, so we elected for a hot drop. Captain Oliver, as usual gave us a spot-on drop and we landed right on it.

    On the bottom, we found what to me looked like 100 foot of vis, and nice blue water. We did a 30 minute bottom time for a total runtime of 130 minutes. Adrian took photos, while I did the video. The video was shot with a Sony NEX5 camera in a nautical housing with a pair of Mangrove 4L6 lights. Enjoy -

    Very nice, thanks. Hot drop! Did he even slow down?

    Yesterdays dive up here was a balmy 48 F water temp. Little vis to 60 ft., below that it was 60 ft. or so. Green with envy over clear warm water.

    Cheers,

    Peter

    I think the reason Tony likes to be the one doing the video is that he gets to choose which embarrassing moments to include. And they never seem to include him.

    Video Editor is a glorified term for liar... They can make you look any way they like no matter what you actually say or do... The magic of movies.

    Don, you think you're telling me something I don't know?

    If I had to go toe-to-toe against Kim, I'd put money on her to win!

    Kind of gives you an idea why Tony has been behaving lately!
