Kamala and Bill...

and Kamala's just trying to deflect.

Remember, I attended a Happy Hour with them a few months back. No clues needed. I actually got to have more than 5 minutes of SniperDiver's attention; usually WW gets the balance, but at that Happy Hour she was just a little pre-occupied with Mr. Bill.

That's my guess and I'm sticking to it! :diver:

My guess would be Kamala and Bill.

Bill has been on a fair number of SD trips of late
Kamala did her technical training with Bill in SC
There were rumors she was seeing someone on the east cost.

Wonder if she will be moving back to the Carolnias?

I suspect you are correct. An additional clue would be the complexity of the underwater proposal; it takes a fair amount of preplanning and gathering of resources to pull something like that off -- I believe Bill would have those at his disposal, and still be able to keep everything on the down low.

:D

Notice that Kamala's second clue is a quote from someone else? It's called 'mis-direction', as in "watch my other hand..." while the first one does the magic (or gets the ring). Hmmm. Now just *how* many of the ladies on the trip have another lady friend on the same trip?

Even if I totally blew it, :D congrats :) to the happy couple! Big grins all around!

Well I just got home from this fantastic trip, only to find out my wife has been reading this thread with some concern while I was gone.

So, in case anyone is still guessing, I am stating for the record that it wasn't me getting married.

But, I suggest before you make your final call, you might want to ask Orcaman (Larry) how Kamla's monkey almost caused him to miss the whole event.

It doesn't take that much skill and luck! On the Aqua Cat in the Bahamas two weeks ago an Irish couple got engaged underwater. She was caught totally by surprise! All you gotta do is keep the number of people involved very low (preferably ONE) and it's easier to keep a secret. BTW, the new Mrs-to-be looked very happy!

:D Best of luck to BOTH wet-behind-the-ears couples! :D :)

Gee, I guess this drops TWO of our crew out of the Twister competitions!

Well, just back from a most interesting trip...the diving we got in was very good. The conditions were better than predicted for both friday and saturday, some current but managable on friday. Of course the "big surprise" on the first dive got everyones attention..good thing I had sunglasses as the "bing- bling" was quite impressive :cool2: ...as for WHO the real happy couple is...well..I will let them reveal themselves when they want to make it official..

Unfortunately we were blown out on sunday but we did get some interesting "wreck diving" done in the parking lot after heavy rains. We did a giant stride off the balcony of the "bunk house " and did a swim through the van..using a wreck reel for safety of course :D

This was a fabulous trip with great people and ALOT of laughter!!! The "bunkhouse girls" were so much fun and I will look forward to our next dive trip together...We came up with a new and very unique way to sling..umm.. pass out the infamous SD.COM trip t-shirts at the also infamous SD barbeque..which as usual was delicious.. BTW..WW is a great cook...

As for LARRY AND THE MONKEY...well...we think mandrake is really mandy..there are pictures but I believe Larry is holding them captive...possibly he will reveal them soon :lmao:

A bit off topic (since I already know the answer!) but decided this was the place to post! As co-captain/divemaster on the NC trip, I just wanted to applaud the whole Single Divers group on a great trip. Although the weather forecast was bleak to say the least, the seas cooperated enough for me to get to know each and every diver on the trip. We had a very diverse group with all levels of experience who melded together into an unforgettable trip for myself and the entire crew. We did our best to prepare everyone for the worse in weather and sea condtions and were glad mother nature made liars out of us for at least two days. I take great pleasure in seeing the unending smiles of a diver when they hit the ladder on the return from the depths after a great dive. Seems like we had a lot of those smiles. My only regret is that "boat issues" kept the crew from fully participating in the cookout. Seems like everyone was having a VERY good time. Sunday was a bit disaapointing weather wise but I think we were very lucky to get in the two days we had. Even going inshore (which is never our preference) proved to be fun with most everyone enjoying close to an hour of bottom time on both wrecks.

As we all know, the diving community is quite small and I look forward to crossing paths with each and every one of the divers from this past weekend. Special thanks to Kamala for her attention to details and making this weekend happen. Hope to see you all soon back on the Carolina coast.

Capt. Jim

My special thanks to Capt Jim as we all were very fortunate to celebrate his birthday with him and talk about being a great sport letting all the gals on the boat spank him! I think the last one went toi his lovely better half Sandy however I think Nurseshark got her fair share in as well closely behind the Fingrabber, SanDeigoCarol, WreckWench, SeaUrchin, BarracudaBabel, Amy and our newest SD member "Alison" who has yet to create her new screen name!

The crew on this trip was simply amazing. Being a boat capt I know the tremendous amount of work required BEHIND THE SCENES to keep a boat running in top shape and an operation like this one sailing smoothly so that customers have a great time! This crew started well earlier than our stated 6:15am on the boat and worked far longer after our return to ensure that all systems were go. And when they had a bit of difficulty keeping one of the electrical systems functioning properly, they called in backup support and so were late to the BBQ. But most of them joined us late however the SD crowd was still in full swing so the party just got better upon their arrival.

I would dive with this crew again and my special thnks to the Captains for finding a way to get the needed 'juice' for the trip surprise. As for the guess that I was behind the underwater sound system, Desert_Diver is right. They are fairly easy to do but in this case I did do the sound system for the lucky couple and I was thrilled to make that contribution to the project! Oh and I did get to videotape Larry! And the 'quiet' shy guy from Texas TRULY came out of his shell for this event. He is quite the romantic and this trip proved it. Not everything is as simple at it might appear.

However as Netmage says...more clues will be in the pictures being posted soon. (Due to the blowout on Sunday the gang had internet access but since all were traveling on Monday, the access was gone. Be looking for more clues today as people return from the trip.)

I am just a simple videographer. I just hit the RED button and whatever is in front of the lens is what is captured. I make no claims as to the authenticity or whatever else the lens may capture. I am just a simple videographer. I will say it was a 1/2 carrot ring.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

I'd just like to say I had a great time on this trip. I definitely liked the challenge of the currents/depths and getting to see some history. It definitely gave me some more meaningful experience too, as my only dives so far were in calm, hi-vis Cayman waters.

Jim, I think you and your crew did a wonderful job and no worries about the boat issues. It was out of your hands and that stuff happens. I'm glad you guys at least got a chance to join us for some food and beer and you guys definitely made the trip enjoyable for everyone. I just hope that the spankings or the picture with the "shirt delivery system" didn't get you in too much trouble with Sandy :lmao:

This trip has definitely left me with some good memories, and who knows, maybe a bit more. :cool2:
