Just a few pictures here and I'll rotate them on a regular basis.  Many of the faces have changed over the years, but not because we've lost any on a trip!  The summer crew is pretty hard core due to the challenging dives we've been doing recently, but it's nice to fall back on the in-shore wrecks again later in the season so we can get some of the others back on the boat.

The picture wouldn't be complete without mention of our charter boat captain, Doug Currier of the Donna III.  It's not easy dealing with the likes of us, and his experience has helped us in our search for many new wrecks we've found and documented.  And his challenges in getting us to the Palmer/Crary and Portland were certainly as significant as ours in diving them.  He's been a crucial part of designing all our deep-water safety techniques.
