Wrecks, Dive Training Magazine and more

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 2, Number 3

Well the Eagles came up a little short in New Orleans and the Patriots came up really big in Foxborough. By this time next week, the Super Bowl match-up will be settled.

Scuba Shack has started our latest IDC. Two more of our Divemasters have started their journey towards becoming PADI Instructors and will be completing the instructor examination in May at Dutch Springs. We
are back in the pool on Thursday night Jan. 24 at New Britain YMCA. If you want to get in the water and practice or are interested in a refresher course, please call the shop to register.

I know that a lot of our divers like wrecks. All kinds of wrecks both the artificial wrecks sunk for our enjoyment or what we call real wrecks caused by weather, war or some other cause. The Chester Poling off of Cape Ann, Mass. is one of our favorites. I recently read this article on eight different wrecks around the globe. I have done two – the Kittiwake in Grand Cayman and the Carthaginian in Hawaii. How many have you done?

While I am on the subject of wrecks, here is a short video on a new wreck found in the English Channel. Strange story. (The original story is at the KTVB website.)

The latest edition of Dive Training Magazine has arrived at the shop. As usual it is filled with all kinds of great information. If you’d like a copy to take home and enjoy please stop by the shop. We also have some back issues available.

Also, I have a little more detail on our Fish Identification course. Here are the details. I am really looking forward to working with REEF. Call and let us know if you are interested in coming down to Key Largo and doing something a little different.

Boston Sea Rovers is less than two months away. Come up to Danvers, Mass. and you won’t be disappointed.

We have a lot of new things in the pipeline for 2019. Stay tuned.
