Back in the USA, XS Scuba Dive Light & Kodiak Queen

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 1, Number 6

I returned from my trip to India early Saturday morning after a 14-hour flight from New Delhi. It is good to be home. I thought there would be more fall color after being gone for a week, but it is still pretty green and warm.

Training continues to go strong in October. The Open Water class is in its fifth week while our public safety open water has moved to the dry suit phase. Chris and Matt initiated public safety training for a team in Massachusetts. Rescue class has started their pool phase and we’re not stopping there. We are putting the final touches on a new open water weekend class. It is being developed to provide an intense training weekend that fits busy lifestyles where our traditional six-week class proves difficult to accommodate work and family commitments. Keep an eye out for more details on the web site.

One of the key pieces of equipment we have in our gear bag is a dive light. There are a lot of them on the market and it is always a difficult choice. One of our choices is the XS Scuba LT100 dive light. It is compact, light-weight, bright and runs on 3 AAA batteries. Retail price is $60. Check it out.

I came across a very interesting documentary about the Kodiak Queen. You may have heard about the ship sunk in the British Virgin Islands with the sculpture of a Kraken on it. The ship was a former US Navy vessel that survived Pearl Harbor and then went on to Alaska before ending up in BVI. This documentary is a Rob Sorrenti film narrated by Kate Winslet. Give it a view.

Donna and I will be headed to Pennsylvania this Saturday to spend some time with my Mom for her 85th birthday and then it is on to Turks and Caicos for the dive trip.

Thanks for tuning in,
