leaks

leak detection job last week, a few tests determined the path to follow. a little diving, a little digging and one happy future leak detector.

You look great for your age Jim.

And I can't even tell which eye is the good one.

it's a matter of eating right, getting plenty of rest and living an overall safe and clean lifestyle.

Absolutely Matt, he is a one year veteran with more than 8 dives.
All of the boys that live close learned at 6/7yo, started this one a little earlier (5yrs.5mos.).
I use a hooka / snuba system in a controlled enviornment and single atmosphere which allows me to provide the kids with an experience few others get at their age. they make some bank in the process. you have similar opportunities with your kids Matt, take advantage of the time you have with them.

Just got in from a 40 min dive. Third this week, found 2 pinholes and one tear about half the size of a dime (not a nickle, a dime).

One more this weekend unless the guy with the torn liner wants me to do the repair which will make 2 more.

It is nice to make really good money doing something you like to do and cool off at the same time.
