A second dive of the day for Clinton and me; this time we concentrated more on practice and less on sightseeing. I told Clinton that we have to see the end of his reel, and he obliged :-)

Practicing tieoffs, Clinton took us along the outer pinnacle structures of Butterfly house heading straight west. We really didn't see much worth reporting, and probably not because it wasn't there: we just missed it!

On our return to the boat I also practiced deploying the backup mask while doing a stop. Listening to your ears for depth guidance while doing this is tricky, but it could have been worse; Clinton needed to give me some control inputs but we got the job done.
