Re: Very fame! Wow!

Here's a photo of a monster bug my father Ron Merker (who recently passed) took back in the 1950s at Catalina.

He had big hands, but notice how they compare with the size of the horns. And he's...

I know my father's life intersected with many freedivers and spearfishermen -- mostly here in Southern California where he lived his entire life.

He was a great husband, father, and grandfather,...

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Beautiful weekend at the channel islands. Spent hours lumming through kelp beds on an SUP. So much fun spotting fish this way.

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Sasha, your boat is solid! And, what an awesome history. Whoever buys her from you will be very fortunate.

Are you taking a break from boat ownership, or moving to something new?

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Wow, who was more afraid -- him (getting run over), or you (turning your buddy into chum)? Pretty cool. And, how close did you get to him? With that wide-angle GoPro, I'm guessing 12 feet?
