Yeah, that's another good book. I have dove with some of the guys in it and with the guy who wrote the book countering some of the claims made in it. I stopped doing deep air to raise a family shortly after the "U-Who" was found and before it was identified.
Beyond Sport Diving by Bradley Sheard is another good read. I have dove with probably half the characters in that one. Capt. George Hoffman fully lived up to his name as the self proclaimed "Best damn dive boat Captain on the East Coast" in my opinion. Most of my NJ diving was done with him on all three iterations of his boat "Sea Lion". Both of these books bring back some great memories.
It is a good book-makes you very aware of what happens when you make a mistake diving.There are 2-3 other books that cover deep wrecks and the same people.Wait until you discuss the book with a non diver-they don't understand the "why" part.I don't know how to explain the excitement of going underwater to someone who doesn't dive.They look at me like I'm crazy for "risking" my life.Guess they saw Jaws too many times.

If you've got room for one or two more can we go with ya, my wife is a diver also, she ususally likes the warmer weather, but me, I could care less about the water temp. If its cold im gettin in, its warm im gettin in too.:clap:
Where I dive for anchors is not a fun area.The viz. at the bottom is almost zero.You can not read your gauges unless tight to the mask.Mostly done by feel.The reason there are so many anchors is because an old cable is exposed from the bottom.Fishermen get anchors and hooks-did I mention all the old fishing line ?-stuck on the cable or other anchor chains.I dive here because it's close to my house and we have a boat.No way would I drive far to do this-well not real far anyway.
