No diving yet, too busy around the house but... I have some of those miflex hoses installed and I'm anxious to give them a try!

Updates to the site
I have changed the St Lawrence water temperature from a pop up to a page that provides more information. The water temperature now comes from two water buoys and a map to indicate where they are, approximately, located. Weather from several locations along the St Lawrence is shown as well as the view from a web cam in Brockville
that actually points at the river.
The home page has a ClustrMap
, which is supposed to show where my visitors are coming from.

Do it yourself section
I have posted a do it yourself section on the web site. My first project was something I always wanted to build since I read somewhere that some coral fluoresces under ultra violet light. Pretty simple project, finally started when I came across a UV LED in a pen in the dollar store.
Bad year for my diving
I just spent too many weekends working around the house trying to get some landscaping completed. I probably only had 4 dives this year! Pitiful. "Next year" is the battle cry now. I want to try and get some equipment and processes for my UW Video finalized before the 2008 season. Procrastination is too easy.

Water temperature error
Seems that the water temperature buoy has suffered a failure. They note that it will be repaired when they get around to it. I cannot find another one (yet) that has water temperature, so I guess we will just have to dip a toe....

Great Day at the Rothesay
Excellent weather made this a great day to dive. Wetsuit, 5 mil, was
fine but starting to feel cool at 40 minutes. Water temperature was 11
C. There was lots of green algae floating in the water which may make
the video look like flying through green clouds. The water visibility
was a bit on the low side. This may have been a product of the dozens of
divers at a time visiting the wreck. The wreck itself seems a bit the
worse for wear. Maybe it had a bad winter.
The video camera attached to the DPV seemed to work well, I had to make
a few buoyancy adjustments after the dive which should make it easier

I'm disappointed that other duties prevent us from diving this weekend,
but I'm hoping to get a chance to finalize the buoyancy testing on the
DPV-Video setup and have it ready for testing next weekend.
