Depth was suggested.  Because of drift dives, time was limited so the boat
could collect all the divers at the same time.  However, divers could could
surface early if needed so most divers stayed to 700psi.

Unbelievable!!!  12 Large 24x24, Covered, padded, semidry shelves with 12,
110v and 12, 220v plugs for chargers.  Warm DRY towels ready for persons
and gear after each dive.  Large rinse tank at dive platform.  Very Nice
high speed PC and huge monitor in common area for reviewing photos. 
Printer available.  This is the best setup I have EVER seen for serious
photographers.  I had both still and video cameras with lights.  Almost
every one of our 14 divers had camera equipment.  We had plenty of space
and extra left over.

The only thing I wish I had known before leaving home was that they were
not booked for the following week!!!   This boat was our replacement after
the Palau Agressor had a mishap with a container ship and was put out of
commission the week before we were scheduled.  Nervous as to what we were
settling for, we were more than pleased with the result.  Cabins were
spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped with their own toilet, sink
and shower.  (Ok, maybe a little more hot water if your the last one in but
it was never COLD). Lots of AC plugs and a small desk in each cabin with
dimmable lights no less!  Top deck had lounge chairs.  Master cabin had
it's own private deck and TV/VCR/Refrigerator.  Food was a new resturant
each night.  With four meals and five dives a day, all we did was eat and
dive.  Service was 5-star.  Nitrox, Air available with Tri-mix on the way. 
This boat was built from the ground up as a live aboard, serious dive
operation.  I think we found a hidden treasure in the Ocean Hunter II.
