I have a favor to ask Did anyone who dove the Nodules on the Bimini wall take a photo of the plaque dedicated to Capt Jim Boddy. Please email me if you did so I can get a copy & send it to his parents. I haven't been back since the memorial/dedication.
Thanks

OK, I lost my Single Divers T-shirt there three years ago.
I'm not proud but stuff happens :teeth:
Is it still on the wall?

I didn't see it, but I was too busy looking for other incriminating evidence. Oops, I mean travel photos... :teeth:

That seems like a long time ago that plaque went down. Let me know if you can't find a photo.

Russell and Eric both had cameras on that dive and I pointed it out to many folks as we drifted along so there is a good chance that there is one. Ariel grabbed all the pics on the boat so he may be able to assist as well.

Yes Jim went on his final dive Oct 96. Blackbeards took family & friends to the dedication March 98. I can't believe I haven't been back as it is one of my most favorite dive sites. A family friend wrote a poem for him that hung at the Compleat Angler & Sarah had one at End of The World. He was a great guy

Hello everyone.

Sorry for the delay. I spent so much time and effort removing the smell of diesel out of my clothes. Eight nights in the bottom buck with the diesel smell, it was not easy washing it out of my clothes.

I have finally assembled and gone through half of the pictures that everyone gave me. There are so many to go through. Once I have singled out the prime pictures, I will then create the DVD.

I will keep you posted.

I just received and finished watching Ariel's DVD and picture collection from the Dolphin trip. A Sterling job! :cool1: Nice mix of slideshow pics, music and video. :D

:D :teeth: :wub:

Wenchie - If you ever want a good videographer offer Ariel the position. Great promo material...

Heck, I can't even seem to chide SD event returnees to post to the Gallery. :D Any chance we could coax Ariel into posting some from this trip?

I think that would be like looking at a postcard of the Sistine Chapel roof. It should be seen in its entirety for full impact. Take a look at your copy when it comes and see if you disagree. The music, timing and presentation are exceptional. The DVD is 1.44 GB RAW so I can look at making an AVI of it, but Ariel would have to be onboard with that as it is his work.

May I suggest I make a low-quality AVI for download (To make it as small as possible) and you can offer copies for sale on the board. I am sure you would get a few orders and as he did this completely out of his pocket I would like to see him make a few bucks to cover his costs if nothing else. :D

I suggested clips for that reason...a low res version could also work but its up to Ariel. And I think he agreed he would take a small donation to cover the costs and maybe more. Can you find out and let me know? Thank you! k
