This is an "Admiralty" anchor, from around 1800 but well before 1870 (when they went to chain).

Canibul, We're going to be in your neck of the woods this December/January. Have any dive recommendations?

Sure do, Randy. What kind of diving you like? shallow reef stuff, or deep wall stuff?

Heck, you can drop the hook right off the beach in front of the house and we will swim out and show ya.

That anchor photo, btw, is when it was on the bottom in about 18 ft.of water inside the reef. Pretty clear, n'est ce pas?

Not exactly an underwater shot, but close. It's my 10-year old learning to SCUBA. She's so cute!

Here is son #1 (24) on his first time with a hookah. I was adjusting his weightbelt to get him neutral.

This is stepson # 3, trying to decide if he wants to go for his first scuba lesson or not.

Lats and Atts published this one, and several others I sent them.

These are easy enough to find, but can become quite agitated if you stick em with a hand spear..
Good eating, though.

ahhhhh, barrrrri-CU da! (you have to be humming the song by Heart to appreciate the pronounciation). I catch those buggars on my fishing line all the time - don't ever eat them b/c they are scavengers. Afraid of getting the Cig.

My wife has no formal SCUBA training, except for what I have taught her. I have been diving for over 40 years. But she took to surface supplied diving really quick. We love the hookah.

I know that song by heart. We have done quite a study of cig. If you know what to look for, and who to ask, its not so much of a problem. The smaller barracudas are delicious!! We give them to friends here, and they all eat them. They know which areas have the dead coral that causes the cig.

You eat grouper without thinking, though, dont you? You have about the same chances of cig with grouper!!!

Scavengers?? Personally, I wont eat crab, but thats a long story. I dont eat Maine Lobsters, either. THOSE are ocean buzzards.

Once upon a time, Europeans were amazed to see a native american eat a tomato and not die!!
