Roddy,

Very nice!  I look forward to some SI images as well as some video from the SeaView.  We really need to hook up at some point and do some diving!

Don't forget me when you get to Charleston.
You might need a deck hand so you both can dive.

Thanks, get these things located and then lets schedule some dives. 
Robert, Terry and I need some new dives.....

You have too much free time.  Retires are supposed to be busy all the time with community help and volunteerism.... ;D
