    Seamist video

    Henry, Jeff, Kim, Kurt, Terri and I dove the Seamist today. She sits upright in 236. We had dead-flat seas, a 3 knot current on the surface, but flat calm at the bottom, with about 80 foot of vis. Since we are all warm water pussies, a 62 degree bottom temp had everyone cut their runtimes short, but still a great dive.

    Great job as per usual, Tony! It's great diving with an expert video man, get to see all the issues your having that day. I am leaking bailout everywhere, (just small amounts, fortunately). so much for a buddy bubble check!

    I think I'll wait for winter for the water to warm up!
    And Jeff, you must of misinterpreted my signal for "bubbles" during the dive!
    Thankfully you got it when I ripped the offending hose of your tank and beat you with it on deco:D

    It was still a great dive regardless of the cold! I'm glad Tony was able to get some footage!

    Nice video! Always fun to watch you "warm water pussies" getting on some nice wrecks! But 62° & wet isn't too pussified to me!

    @Jeff-- what's that SW doing on your top tray?

    Also, it looks like a lot of fun reeling in that bag from 200'+ in a 3knt current looked like it took off on a 45° angle.

    Whoever was off to Jeff's sides on ascent....nice job on your buoyancy control!

    On top of my tray is the Shearwater HUD power/control unit. i put a piece of SS plate over the plexiglass to protect it a bit.

    Yea, the bag took off like a shot with no current at depth and 3 kts up top. i did a LOT of reeling. next time in those conditions i am going to hold off shooting until i get a bit shallower and more in to the top current flow. we always like to get a bag up soonest if possible, for the dive boat crew to stay on us during the drift deco.


    That was Kim beside me in that shot. she always does a good job. her boyfriend, on the other hand...................

    Looks like a really cool wreck! Great video. 2 bailout tanks on a dive to 200+ feet though with penetration?
