Thanks

yeah man

got out today off marathon.
went to some reef in 25' of water and had about a hazy 25' of viz.
strong current out of the southwest...real strong. both the viz and current remained the same all day, although the seas had layed down real nice by mid afternoon.
even got to do some spearfishing while guiding some people!

Re: Current Vis Big Pine 31MM - Layton 72MM

Did a dive with work on Thursday on a 40-50' ledge off the long key bridge. Looked like blue water was pushing in, and vis looked deceptively blue. Had about 60' or so of vis in 50' but it was the hazy blue...not clear. Mostly a VERY minimal surface current...just enough to extend the tag line out past the boat. Nothing noteworthy on the bottom current. Temp was about 78.
