    So, I'm wondering how much Debby is stirring things up down south. Is it rough enough to uncover some new stuff?

    I just bought a boat that is burning a hole in my pocket AND I have 28 days off! Somebody tell me if I should consider the trek to Venice...

    We were just talking about that on Saturday. Once the seas settle dowwn the hunting should be great. We bet lots of stuff will be uncovered. Let me know if you need any help on the boat.

    Huge waves right now from tropical storm. Takes about a week to clear up, I dive there alot. I live in Ft. Myers. Great fun fossil hunting. If not happy there drive on down to Ft. Myers where 25 artificial reefs offshore, good diving.

    Great! I'll give it a look in a few days and check the viz reports. Anyone with numbers want to come along? I have some numbers but I don't know how good they are. I've been told that if you get in the vicinity it doesn't matter much, especially after a mix up.

    Is it easy to get good fills close to the harbor there?

    If you want someone to dive with I'm down to go. I don't have numbers for teeth but you don't really need them. It will probably be a good week before you can dive here. It is as rough or rougher than I have ever seen it and I grew up here.

    Winds change to come out of the east starting Sunday. By midweek next week vis should be cleared up. I'm thinking of checking it out on Sunday, and if not, maybe a 4th dive on Wed.

    We're all 'wait-n-see' at this point....If no new storms come up and the winds come out of the E-NE long enough to lay the seas down and let the viz clear, it should be interesting to see what has been uncovered...But those are a lot of 'IF's'....First people in will probably do well...Good luck every one........
