Thanks Johanna

So here are the confirmed divers. We need 3 more for Sunday to take out the larger boat and we need 2 more for Monday, go figure.

"Maybes", I am not counting you until you confirm a solid yes. Looks like we will have the boat to ourselves.

Charges should be standard if we have the right number of people.

Are people interested in getting together the evening of the 17th for cocktails, snacks and mingling? We do have a 52" plazma with an Blue Ray player for DVDs. We live on Queen Anne facing Magnolia.

Was just on the Bandito on Saturday and had two marvelous dives...

You can remove the question mark for me on Monday. I'll be there for both days. Now I just need to get in the water and get comfortable with a nearly new dry suit. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Sorry, correction folks i'm out for the 17th/18th.
-----------------------------------------------------------

still room for one more on both days?

this is wetsuit diveable, yea? i haven't been up that far before.
the website said 50-56 deg....but is that right? that's about water temp here in Norcal!

i've got 10mm but if that's not good enough, maybe i'll finally get my act together and get a drysuit. :) or do quick dives. :blush:

Are you sure you can guarantee that? <_<

So we are short one body to fill the boat. We can look around for another person or spread the cost across the group and go out with a lucky 13 divers. Please choose "13" or "add one".

People definitely dive this area in heavy wetsuits (7-10mm), although most end up getting dry suits after awhile. If you've been diving comfortably in 50 degrees in your 10mm, I'd say you'll be fine diving around here in it.

hmmm. perhaps I should amend the statement:

"Should Douglas stab anyone, I promise to capture it on film."

Well, not on film, but you understand. :)

So for now we will be going out with 13 divers. Might add $5-7 to everyone's tab. I will post more details as we get closer.

It turns out I'll be free on the 17th, so if there's still a space I would love to come along. Can't do the 18th, though, as I'm flying at 21.25. Space for a limey?
