My pirate name is:
Iron William Vane
A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!

Look me up on Dive Buddy

"I will spare you a gushy description of the dive itself, except to say that when you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent. "
-Dave Barry

bulletScuba Diving: I have completed the Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver Course. I've also completed the Nitrox Diver, Deep Diver and Peak Performance Buoyancy specialties, as well as the emergency first responder courses, Adult, Child, infant CPR/AED and First Aid. I need two more specialties to qualify for the Master Scuba Diver rating. I have completed 20 dives now and am taking the Rescue Diver course. I completed the final written exam on October 14th and will do the water work soon. Once I've done that I'll be certified as a Rescue Diver and can start training for Divemaster and Instructor.

This is the training site for most of the area divers. It's located just outside of Terrell, Texas about 85 miles east of my place.

I spent a day there in August with a dive buddy and we made 5 dives. We explored pretty much all of the features. The plane appears to be the fuselage and cockpit of a Beech 1900 but I'm not sure. Swam into and out of it and also swam through the shark, labeled Sisco. As we were swimming past the wall formation 62" marker, an enormous school of fish swam past. Black bass at least 18 to 24 inches long each and it took a full minute for the school to pass me.
