Area to rinse Photo gear.  Space to work on digital equipment.  I actually
accidently lost my camera on a night dive.  It floated to the top and one
of the crew members dove in the water to retrieve it for me!  She gave it
to me when I surfaced.

It really was all good.  The crew was very accomodating.  The showers were
hot. The other divers were great to hang out with after the dives. 
Everyone was extremely helpful.  It was the first dive for my girlfriend
since her Certification a year earlier.  She had a great time as well.  The
boat was very nice and spacious.  The Truth Aquatics website gave a great
list of what to bring on the dive and what not to bring.  There was a great
area to clean our catch and they actually had a freezer on board to keep
all the divers' catch during the trip.  Our gear usually dried overnight in
the hanger area below deck (next to the engine room).  Our tanks were
filled quickly and ample.  There was plenty to eat and the food was great! 
They acually made accomodations for those divers who were vegitarians (I
wasn't one of them).  

The only complaint I could have had was that another diver had accidently
taken my wetsuit and turned it in as a rental to the shop.  One of the
folks from the shop found me in the parking lot and returned my suit.  I
would recomend this outfit (Truth Aquatics) and the Channel Islands as a
great diving experience for beginners and experienced alike!
