    Default Quick little river question

    Hey,


    Does anyone know exactly how many feet back the well casing is?


    How far past it does the line go?

    I want to say 2,200 or there abouts haven't been back there since the new fancy arrows were put in, the line goes a good ways past it but the Cave starts to squeeze down and get pretty silty

    Probably closer to 2,300, but that was before the relining.

    It's not really all that far considering a diver using a Tekna scooter can tow a locally know photo-pitchperson (to the well casing).

    Very late the the game- but chiming in..

    I saw this very occurrence at Ginnie last year! Thought I was narked or taking a C02 hit because as I'm swimming through the sand dunes I look over to see a diver with a Tekna, a 10' tow rope and another diver cruising by! I took a picture but a blur was all I was able to manage. I can't believe this is such a common thing for them to do..

    That might have been the same team pulling the same old routine.
    They were known to both dive Ginnie together until the diver in tow got banned from diving at Ginnie for other reasons.

    after the reline, add 100' to the LR map distance notations to correlate with current markers.
    Note that the reline ended in the dome room so those markers beyond are from the old survey .

    You can scooter all the way there but it's not generally the best idea due to Cave conservation/higher silt potential, most people drop scooters at the end of the dome room then it's a pretty short swim

    Scootering there is no problem, it's the return that has proven to be a difficult issue.
    The thought of that reminds me of watching Saudi Drifting vids on YouTube. Poor outcome.
