Comments Undersea Inc. shop is 1 mile north of boat. The Pegusus (boat)has seen better days. Planned to do two days of diving, only did one! Max. depth on the reef was 28 feet. Mixed group of divers and snorkelers. The fish life was great. Corals were fair. Strong currents on second dive, the boat Capt. did a good job of getting all of the snorkelers back to the boat. On the way in one engine quit, and the steering went out. Took two hours to reture to dock. The owner was waiting on shore, did not seem to know what to do, or how to help. We were scheduled to go out with them again, took a pass on that. Steer clear!!!
