    Dive reports with beach/weather conditions

    Had a great 90 min dive with divindiva69 on Saturday. Just wanted to clear up any confusion, they were comb jellies, not box jellies. They are very common & harmless.

    Scuba Shack's Boat Get Wet Sinks in Key Largo

    I may be wrong but I think this is the one where there was a leak in the hull. The bilge was full & when they went to put the boat up on plane, all the excess water rushed to the back & the boat went down aft end first. The engine hatch popped & that was what trapped 2 divers in forward area.

    Car keys when shore diving

    I have a Honda Ridgeline. There is a manual key for the trunk which I carry in my wet suit key pocket. The fob is locked in the trunk. To solve the problem of being unable to lock the fob in the trunk because of the signal, I wrap it in foil.

    Will this work?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm....................I'm not familiar with that boat, but a google search shows me an inflatable yak. I have my doubts. Generally, most folks use sit on tops. If you have a pool or know someone who does, try it out in the pool & see how it works.

I would say 3 to 4 feet, with a lot of snot. The reef looks pretty dead. I saw 4 Sheepshead and one juvenile...
