Started the Dive Master Mapping Project

Started the mapping project last weekend. Decided to do McAbee beach, as I like diving there.

Didn't go a smoothly as we had hoped, but actually I was satisfied overall. I think we made a reasonable start. Going to take a lot of trips to Monterey to get it finished though (IMHO).

As far as I can tell (using compass navigation and fin kicks), we actually mapped the area under water indicated by the smaller red dots on the image below.

Shopping for Dive Gear

I didn't realize just how much dive gear you can get via!

There's a lot of stuff I would still want to buy from my local dive shop, to try for fit and check-out how it works, etc. But things like reels, floats, flags, etc., I'm sure is OK to buy online and save a few bucks.
