    If not, I hope no one has to ever bail out to OC during a CCR dive at Ginnie and then face the wrath of the cave police.

    This is true, although they were quite prolific in teaching. But, if you were planning a technical dive in Devils and needed some advice, would you ask those guys working behind the counter, or the people working behind the counter now? If promoting cave diving was a key to Ginnie's business model, then perhaps you'd see cave instructors on their staff, and those people working in the shop were a draw to Ginnie,but it isn't important or part of their plan

    Hasn't been a important part of the plan for a very long time. Really I don't understand why Ginnie doesn't use the basin for a floating bounce island and charge for it. I would.

    I believe Berman was 36 in 1995.

    Just power it with old oceanic scooters purchased prior to 1998...they are grandfathered in.

    Suzuki is by far the best value for outboard motors these days. These guys have the best pricing
