First official summer dive since the solstice has past –
Fourteen people. 3 boats out on Lake Nagawicka for a blast…
Had 2 dive spots from which to choose;
Choice 1 and Choice 2.
Went with #1: North of Seven Seas for our three dive crews.
Boat 1: Julie, Rhonda, Brian, Pete, Tom, Ryan, Jeff, and Paul
Boat 2: Roger, Mark, Steph, Jim
Boat 3: Jeff Gavin and John who had to be hauled…
As the story goes, boat 1 and 2 loaded and launched –
But boat 3: it started.
But the engine…. It farted!
It seems the engine wouldn’t lower into the lake,
So Pete had to tow Jeff’s boat to the dive spot –
For the dive, they would not forsake!
Air temp 78;
Water temp below thermocline 52 vis 25 ft;
Made conditions quite great.
Treasures included 2 anchors:
One for Roger and a Richter for Jim;
For the rest, some bottles, and a light pole –
Pickings were slim.
At the beach house, a dive after party for 14 did ensue,
With Marty’s pizza delivered,
Washed down with some tasty brew.
Post dive, back at the Gavin abode –
Was faithful Lori –
There to unload.
Hauling Jeff’s tanks and dive gear.
Jeff sure has her trained!
(Or at least well bribed to be such a dear!)
First summer dive; second longest dive for the year
Down in the books.
On to Pine Lake next week,
For some pristine underwater looks!
