Very sad.  The press is having a field day jumping to wild unsupported (and unlikely) conclusions that he was attacked.   Sigh.....

That article is infuriating.  It jumps to a completely unsupported conclusion that he was attacked, and I'm pretty sure the statement that AUTHORITIES determined he was attacked by a shark is completely false (unless Grind TV is an authority).  Here is a more accurate story: http://www.outsideon...In-Bahamas.html

 

 

For now, it’s hard to say what happened, but the most immediate possibility is that Petty got disoriented or accidentally swam into a swift current and was swept away before anybody noticed he was gone.

“It was a night dive, so getting lost is an option, as is unintentionally swimming out to the Gulf Stream and being caught in the current,” says Andy Dehart, shark adviser for the Discovery Channel and longtime Tiger Beach diver. Dehart also thinks a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, is a possibility.

Do you have a photo of how you mounted the Orcalight Seawolf 2260 to your DSLR rig?

Another vote for the Leak Sentinel by Vivid Housings.  Much less expensive, easy to install, and has worked great for me.   I've never had a false positive, even when diving a bit colder water in the Galapagos.

Sounds like a really cool dive.  BTW, those look like bonitos, which are a relative of the tuna, but are not tuna.
