Smile Lake Travis Boat Dive - October 6th

Several of us have been putting together another boat dive out on Travis. This is the post I put up on the ScubaBoard version of the Texas Swampdivers. Hope some of ya'll can join us!! K-Valve
----------------

I heard back from Shawn this afternoon. We're all set for 10:00 a.m. Saturday, October 6th. If we have enough interest Shawn is willing to go out again around 2:45 or 3:00 for a second trip.

Anyone who is interested in going out please send me a PM so I can put your name on the list, send you my cell phone number (if you have questions, or get lost), and give you the code to the gate at Keller's Marina. I'll also need to know what dives you're interested in:

A. Morning only (10:00-2:00)
B. Afternoon only (3:00-7:00)
C. SCUBA Junkie...will do both trips

Miscellaneous Important Details
1. Get to the dock in time to get all of your gear loaded. The Buba Dives boat is moored at Keller's Marina. Here's a link to a map to get you there: 15911 Edwards Dr, Austin, TX 78734, USA - Google Maps. Don't make the mistake of going to Emerald Point Marina by Carlos' & Charlie's. Keller's Marina is near there, but it is NOT the same place. Follow the map! I'm going to try to be there by 9:00 a.m.

2. The gate to the marina may be closed. If it is all you have to do is input the code I'll send everyone who's going out. It's not tricky. You just type in the code and the gate slides open. Viola!

3. The cost is $30/person per trip. If we can fill the boat (6 divers) the cost is a flat rate of only $100, or about $17 each. I'm confident we'll fill at least the morning boat, bring $30 cash just in case someone doesn't show. We'll all pay up when we board the boat. Bring $60 if you're doing both trips.

3. If you feel like being organized you can go to the Buba Dives website and download the forms to fill out in advance. You'll find them here: Buba-_Forms. I'm not sure how they're going to print out, but I do know Shawn D. will take 'em as long as you fill in all the blanks and sign them.

4. Each trip will be a two tank dive. You have to bring all of your own gear including your tanks and a safety sausage. If you don't have a safety sausage Shawn will loan you one of his. If you're doing both trips bring 4 tanks. There won't be time to get fills in between runs.

5. Don't worry about having a buddy. We'll make sure you have one before you hit the water.

6. We usually find anchors and miscellaneous other item lost by boat owners with more money than sense. :-) That said, I'd recommend bringing a lift bag and reel if you have one. Last trip we found 5 anchors and a brand new 2.5 HP gasoline outboard motor.

7. Bring something to drink and snack on just like you would for any dive. We can combine coolers if we need to.

Let's go divin'!!!!!! I'm putting my name down as a "C Diver" or SCUBA junkie. I'm definitely up for two trips because this is going to be a blast!!!

The morning trip is almost filled. We can take one more diver if someone else is interested. Right now we have me, Alan, Shawn O., Brian B., Donna and Hexar confirmed for the A.M. boat.

The afternoon boat still has 3-4 slots left with me, Trista, and Donna confirmed. That's still enough divers to run the trip, so the afternoon dive is definitely a go too.

He lives here in Austin and is out of Tom's Dive and Swim. That's about all I know. He's on the Scubafari listserv.

Both boats (morning and afternoon) are full now. If you didn't get on this time don't worry...we'll do it again!
