DIVI TIARA HAS RECOVERED WELL FROM HURRICANE IVAN.  COMPLETION OF THE DOCK
AND STORAGE SHED FACILITY WILL FINISH THE RECOVERY. THE TIMESHARE
RENNOVATION IS ESTIMATED AT 45% WITH THE ENTIRE SECOND BUILDING YET TO DO.


THE ADDITION OF THE NEW 46-FOOT BOAT IS A REAL PLUS. WITH TWO LADDERS AND A
WIDER BEAM, IT IS A VERY STABLE PLATFORM AND QUITE COMFORTABLE.
THE DIVEMASTERS ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HAVE PEOPLE SKILLS. THEIR BRIEFINGS
ARE ALMOST AS GOOD AS OCEAN FRONTIERS. THE USE OF DRY ERASE MARKER BOARDS
HELPS A LOT. REGRETFULLY, THERE ARE NO CAYMANIANS ON THE TIARA DIVE TEAM. 

THE PAY JUST DOESN'T HACK IT HERE ANYMORE AND THE LOCALS HAVE OPTED FOR
HIGHER PAYING JOBS IN CONSTRUCTION, TRANSPORTATION, AND RETAILING. I MISS
THE BANTER AND GRASS ROOTS ATMOSPHERE THAT THEY USED TO PROVIDE.
