Comments 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!
