Cod, I remember you mentioning the challenges with that river of yours, and my looking at the area on Google Earth. I wondered how often you change your impellers... you must suck a huge amount of sand through your engines!

I am just back from a dive trip in Utila, Honduras where I debated the merits of diving in 39F water with a crowd that had never been in anything colder than about 80F. Certainly having the ability to hand a bag of beer over the side to chill to perfection for post-dive rehydration is bonus. (Of course you Brits wouldn't understand that...)

TB, it's nice to have another northern diver on here. The lakehead is about the only place on the Lakes I have yet to make it to... it's a long haul from here. I get to Whitefish every couple of years, but Isle Royale has been on my TDL for a decades...

One of the guys I met in Utila was from Thunder Bay, but he never dove there... wussy...

Good point - i am about to change mine.

Never seems to cause too many problems - when you flush a sea toilet you can tell just how much silt there is.

Props and skegs seem to take on a sandblasted look though!!!

Wilk I wouldn't kill or threaten to kill Garf on here, you'll have the hunting/animal-rights lobby on to you... killing whales and seals gets them irrate - and there are quite a few of them around - can you imagine what wiping out the last of a species with no real purpose in life other than our amusement would do?

Hey Stoo,
Glad to hear your getting ready for boating and hope the weather treats you good your way. Weather has been not too bad here but I'm so busy with work that my boat is still in storage on my lot next to the house. Should have it out later this week so I can start doing a few repairs and changes.

Can't wait to get out on the water. Possibly later in the summer we might head out towards your neck of the woods.

Cheers
John

I was out last weekend for a few hours John. I was going to dive this weekend but had a wisdom tooth yanked and so can't actually open my face enough to stick a reg in~

Perhaps tomorrow though!

Let's stay in touch as summer progresses. We will likely be coming down to the Rockport/Brockville/Kingston area sometime this spring. It's interesting boating there.
