The Roper is finally home and we took her out Satuday to dive the U-1105 and the Favorite.
The visibility on the U-1105 was the best any of us has ever seen, ambient light actually reached the boat enough to be able to see your buddy or the u-boat from several feet away, perhaps as much as 10-15 feet with your light. Between the great visibility and the absolute lack of current, it was my first opportunity to really tour the u-boat and get a feel for her. I have posted photos on Facebook and will also e-mail them to Dave, so he can add to this blog.
Newlyweds Lee and Debbie Nelson joined us for the weekend, as did new members McKinney Edwards and Bill Toti, who will be participating in next week’s Field School. I guess we didn’t scare them off!
