Description: The Ocala Gang was here! I buddied up with Mo (good looking Red Head) and her Female Friend - we make an interesting team. There was two good size Turtles, and a 6 ft Nurse Shark. There were also a good number of Bugs - just laughing at us (Bug Season is over till Aug).
There was no second dive! Capt Bob's hudraulic steering sprun a leak and we had to resort to manual seerting. This consisted of a 10 ft bar attatched to the square end of the rudder post! It was an interesting trip back! Shit happens - Capt Bob did the right thing - we'll be back for more!
