What a beautiful day on the Atlantic Ocean. The Dina Dee and passengers departed from the dock at 7am in search of a fun dive, good times and a great day.
That is what we got. Upon arrival to the wreck site Chris O jumped over and chased the anchor to the bottom and with in five minutes the pool was open. Divers were already half dressed and as soon as receiving the word were ready and hoping off the boat.
The seas where about 2 foot with an occasional 3 and then began too build to a solid 2-3' on the way in. The vis on the bottom was about 10-15' and I did not get a water temperature reading but it was comfortable on the bottom and warm at about 30 ft where the thermocline started.
A great day was had by all: Gary Smith Jr shot a nice size sea bass and a boat captain’s favorite a monk fish. Steve Lagreca, Capt. George & Mike Edelen load up on mussels. Steve S and I each caught a nice size lobster.
Sanford Levy recovered a base to a cage light. I myself had found the glass dome for a cage light so once they get cleaned up maybe we can join the two. I also found a four position on/off switch, an electric connection hub with all the connections being brass and last but not least a compass lantern.
This lantern is no bigger then a soda can and has a small glass window on the side. The oil lantern is filled, lit and placed inside of the brass housing. It then gets attached to the side of the compass stand and illuminates the compass during the night.
All in all it was a great dive, and a wonderful day with good divers.
