I've made many of the postings on Dive Adventures & I was there when longtime partner, Laury Stowe was electrocuted by the Compressor, due to a faulty Transformer - not the dive shop's problem, but an island problem. FYI, one of their boats partially sank due to vandalism. Their staff is extremely safety minded or we would not dive there every year for the last 9 years.
