Long overdue tribute to Jim Boyd
For those of you who knew him, I wrote up a little tribute to Jim Boyd to commemorate the one year mark of his passing.


Feel free to comment if you wish.

Boat salvage
How'd you like to go for a dive and find an intact, twin engine high performance racing boat!

According to the divers:
Recently, Island Diving discovered, and recovered, the wreck of a high performance, twin engine race-craft from the depths of Lake Ronkonkoma. While salvage law is very clear in this regard, and we are free to do with this vessel what we see fit, we would like to attempt to do the right thing and return it to the rightful owner. If you have any relevant information, please contact us ASAP!

New diving forum
Many on here have attended dive events The North East Diving Equipment Group has held.
I just started a new NEDEG forum here on LJ at http://community.livejournal.com/nedeg/profile
Hope to see you there. :-)

View from the water

It was always great to surface from a dive and see this big smile.
I shall never see it again.
I considered Jim Boyd one of my closest friends. I feel I owe him so much. Now he is gone.
May you rest in peace Jim.
*sobs silently*

I know many folks here know Jim, so I found it appropriate to post this here.

A repost of sorts
These are videos of me doing demonstration dives at the Beneath The Sea dive expo in Secaucus NJ back in March 2007.
I posted some of the videos on Photobucket and linked to them back then. However, some of the files on Photobucket became corrupted and when I tried to re-upload the vids I found that Photobucket videos and LJ no longer play nicely together.
So now they're all on You Tube and I post them here for your viewing pleasure.

More vids behind cutCollapse )

Bizarre diving dream
It's not unusual for me to dream about diving in some form, but last night's dream was not only quite vivid, it was one of the most weird.

(Remember I'd been a forklift mechanic for 25 years)
I was at work and there were 2 forklifts being operated. However, they were being driven down ramps into pits where they were completely underwater. Both lift drivers were in full dive gear and I knew them both. One was wearing some kind of orange suit and helmet, that was nitropup. The other was wearing a black Viking drysuit and AGA mask and stopped for a minute to chat, that was rocketpup.

The gist of it was they had a bunch of large industrial compressed gas cylinders that were to be destroyed, but due to whatever had been in them they had to be destroyed underwater.

I went to the boss and complained as to why I wasn't chosen for the job. He said he didn't think I could do it due to my bad hand. "Hand schmand! I want that job! You know I'm a diver I should have been first pick!" I told him.

So I got the job.
That's when I woke up.

You ever been disappointed it was only a dream?

Dive weekend
Ok all you furry divers out there, Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching, and that means our Hardhat Dive Rally at Dutch Springs in Pennsylvania.

I know there are other things that take place that weekend but I was wondering who if any may be able to make it and who may not.

Hope to see as many of you as possible there.

This pic will cool off the summer heat
Click here for proof that divers are crazy. (like any of us need proof) ;-)

Q: Why is he crazy, U/T?
A: He's not using a full face mask.

You know how it is when you get a new piece of dive gear.
You can't wait to put it on and try it.

My first You Tube video

Just a little video I shot, holding the camera myself, of me testing out my recently acquired AGA mask in the pool on Saturday.
I found the regulator needs a bit of tweaking.

Yes, horny_oryx I know where to find a (currently frozen over) pool.
My new AGA sits here and taunts me.
Too bad I woke up sick this morning. :-(

I want to go diving!

I was looking at dive photos today and dug this one up from the last AC. I've got the itch to go diving now.. Maybe u_t_tiger and I can find a swimming pool somewhere and blow some bubbles?

Trial by fire
......or should that be trial by ice?
January in New Jersey
Overnight temps in the teens and twenties. Highs in the mid 30's.
Perfect weather for a dip in the pool.


To test one's new drysuit.
Happy to say the test was a success.
Test may be repeated next weekend if I have my AGA by then. :-)

New toy
I bought a digital underwater camera yesterday.
Went in the pool today to try it out. As there's not much in the way of scenery in the pool, I tried a few self portraits.
I think this camera is going to work out really well.
