Overall a very good trip.  Some of the crew kept to themselves but others
made up for them and were very entertaining.  "Pass Flying" is
not for the faint of heart but for experienced drift divers it's a blast. 
Lots and lots of sharks on every dive.  Great opportunities to get up front
and close for pictures.  Turtles were very friendly and would pose for good
pictures as well.  Boat was nice but no film processing or hot tub as
advertised.  I have a dispute with the SeaWave Communications.  My onboard
account stated a charge of $47 but I was billed $117 on my credit card. 
Beware of onboard internet use.  Aggressor could have done a better job of
organizing divers in Papeete which has very expensive taxi service.  They
also did not provide a day room in Papeete as advertised.  Aggreessor is
still my live-aboard of choice!
