Deco Profile:
 
Jody and I decided to go diving on a Sunday. We were going to Star Trek; the local guys had me thinking it was an abandoned set from a Star Trek movie, until they told me there were wax cutouts of Kirk and Spock still on the bottom.

We dropped in on top of the wreck, and I was able to make out the shape around 140' or so. The wreck was lying on the starboard side, her bow pointing south. We dropped in on the wreckage, and then made our way aft to peek around the hull. Current pushed us back to the stern, so we decided to head around the other way. We passed over the wreckage, watching the tropical fishes dart in and out of the shadows we probed with our HID's. Eventually, we came to the bow and let the current push us along the hull until we hit a break. We then crossed back over to the top of the wreck before dropping into a swim thru that brought us from the stern through the holds, and up into the middle of the wreck from where we made our ascent.

Deco was uneventful, as we floated in the blue water, listening to outboards ponder if we were really big fish.
