Are you a certified diver, and if so, what certifications do you have?

I've been certifiable since '93: OW, AOW, Cavern, Nitrox, Rescue, and maybe some others I've forgotten.

What other activities do you enjoy?

What! there are other activities? Little British cars are fun (when they don't break down).

What type of diving do you prefer and what would you like to pursue next?

I prefer warm because it's so much easier. Since I don't live near warm water, I'll dive in cold water too. I like wrecks warm, cold or, tepid. Thinking about an ice dive next year--usually no boats, sand, sun; just water & cold (I hate being cold).

How long have you been diving and how many dives have you logged?

Been diving since '82 or '83. I think I'm up to 400 but I'm not sure because I lost some of my log books, so I don't really know what I'm up to.

What is your favorite dive destination?

It's the next place I'm headed, but I have to admit Bonaire is at the top of the list, next to Sipadan.


I don't like being in the sun or on boats, getting wet, sand; I don't swim very well; and I get terribly seasick.... But I LOVE scuba diving. I've learned a lot about diving from my Sea Gypsy friends. Meet you underwater.
