I've done the same for night dives off the beach. The key stays on a quick-link attached to my scuba backplate. The regular key gets locked in the truck.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with my glasses while diving...

For normal boat dives, the regular car keys and cell phone (and Drivers License and credit card) go into a waterproof Otter Box in the console.

I have a prescription mask, but don't like wearing it out of the water when I can avoid it. Unfortunately, I also like being able to see. Current solution is to stow my glasses in the drysuit pocket, or simply stumble down from the parking lot to the water.

Oh, well...

I'd normally assume that you hadn't missed anything, 'cos you're a sharp operator, but do you realise that those things aren't goggles/mask?

I was often asked about them on various boats, in predive checks, i.e. "how do you wear those underwater?" I didn't, they're just waterproof specs, tough too There has to a more aesthetically pleasing version around by now...

Can't believe you post this on a public forum. Codprawn's gone, but other jacks could be reading this thread
