Well I think our luck ran out today. Susan and I had booked Phil to go out a dive Mt. Chamberlin. We had it all planned out, SADDDD.....

The moment I hit the water I felt quite a lot of water getting into my suit from my upper back. I got out and re-seated the neck-seal. I tried again and this time there was a lot of water getting in and staying in :-(.

I called the dive at 45s with a max depth of 23ft :-(. Visibility was two feet at the surface, but seem to open up a bit at depth ;-)

Soon after surfacing we found a 3/4 inch hole in the upper back area of my suit, along on of the seams. I'm glad it happened before the dive than during it.

Good diving, but stay dry ;-)
