Great, enthusiastic crew made the trip for me. Boat engine was recently
rebuilt, but one of the 2 engines failed and resulted in a long ride back
to the dock.  Take a line cutter with you on the dives since there are lot
of boats out fishing on the sites we dove.  If I ever want to learn how to
spearfish this will be the boat that I call up to learn!
