Dry Suit/Advanced Training

This morning I headed out to Salem, MA to meet Dave Caldwell and Heather Knowles.  We would be going out on their boat the Gauntlet, for dry suit and advanced training.  Heather and Dave run the Gauntlet as a charter dive boat on the weekends, so for the first charter in the morning I worked as a deck hand with Dave to help the divers with their gear.  On the second trip, Dave and I dove the Chester Polling, the wreck of a small tanker located off the entrance to Gloucester Harbor.  The visibility was amazing and we even saw a wolf eel!  On the way back to shore, Dave taught me how to drive the boat.  It was a lot of fun and the diving was great.
