None] The boat is a first class operation.  The staff is the best I have
ever seen with the exception of one other boat in Micronesia. we had the
pleasure to have Tony for our captain from Cairns to Lizzard island and
Cameron to the Coral Sea.  The rest of the crew did the whole trip.  The
guides, if you wanted to use them were the 3 L's, Lara, Loz, Lucy .Kiri is
everwhere and Andrew is a first rate Chef.And of course there is the trip
director Mossy.  Mossy is a special caracter.He is part, organizer,fish
expert and feeder, stand up comedian and all around great guy.  The dives
were interesting and the critters plentiful.  The Cod and Shark feeds were
sensational.The reefs, especially at the Coral Sea seem to be in great
shape.We were very lucky motoring out to the Coral sea.  I understand it
can be rough.  The ocean was like glass going out and coming back.  The
long hauls are all done at night, so no dive time was lost.This was one of
the most enjoyable trips I ever experienced on a liveaboard. Just wish it
would not take so long to get there.Overall though, it was more than worth
