    mapping deadhenge: the way to Deadman Reef

    My contribution was laying the line for the builders and I think I added two small stones (while not walking across the sea floor). While I know the original builders, they prefer to remain anonymous and I can't take credit for their feats

    mapping deadhenge: the way to Deadman Reef

    Being that I laid the line myself, I could have been off a few degrees but as you said, not by that far off. :D How accurate is your GPS? Four, five, or six decimal places? Even a variation of 5 meters plus the drift of your sausage when depth and current are factored in could put you off...

    mapping deadhenge: the way to Deadman Reef

    The angle looks wrong. The original layout (done with compass and line) was set to the connect to Shaw's Cove. The angle should be about 15° to the SE.

    Halcyon gaiters

    My first dry suit was a stock large DUI TLS350SE with turbo soles. For the most part it fit quite well everywhere but the legs. The length would have been perfect if I were 6'4", but since I am just slightly under 6', I had a bit of extra material in the legs. I had two options to correct this...

    I did my first ever "warm water' dive on Cayman; booked through the cruise ship I was on. While I did not see anything near as bad as you have seen, I did have to stop one individual who was playing soccer with some coral. I simply tapped him on the leg, pointed out what he was doing and...

    OML/Terranea closed for 30 days

    I don't think Laurel's event was last year and may have been prior to the rule changes. I do remember Jan talking about being turned away by the "snorkel police" but that had to do with what the lifeguard thought was a class taking place. Laguna has rules about classes and what hours/times of...
