Posession Point Redeux

Rebreather Randy
I'm between strobes, etc due to upgrading, but took some above water shots from our club boat dive trip yesterday off Possession Point at the south end of Whidbey island in Puget Sound.

We dove our favorite site, the sunken ferry there, and then did a second dive at "The Fingers" around the corner.

Topside support personnel got fairly seasick in the chop and my dive buddy Dr. Kay had a runaway regulator at the surface, so I dove solo. Had a great dive on the wreck, no current and decent vis. Saw two Giant Red Dendronotid nudis, one was laying eggs. They are about 10" long and look like soft coral. Lots of large ling cod, but I didn't see Big Bertha, who is as big as I am. Had a couple of fouled anchors.

We managed to drag into another boat and get their anchor snagged on our prop. Had to set another anchor, tension it and then unsnag ourselves. Of course then we'd missed the current window and most on our boat scotched a second (or third) dive. But all had a good time.

You dove solo and admit it?

Are you solo certified?

Nice blog!

Yes, like many photographers i do a lot of solo diving. no I'm not "solo certified", I don't think I need to write a check to a guy to have him teach me to be careful.

So I'm an S.O.B.
