Notes: First dive ever with DOUTs, organised by Marcus. It was a bit chilly so some people pulled out. In the end there were four: Marcus, Bobby, Amir (sp.?) and myself. We had a very nice long and shallow night dive: cuttlefish, octopuses, pipefish, scorpion fish and many others. Lovely warm water fizzing with tiny fish hopping, breaking the surface and hitting our faces as we entered.
Equipment: I tried out my new Apeks XTX200 reg and HOG Morph 1000 dive light. All went well. The dive light was really too bright so I had it on the lowest setting most of the time. The lowest setting is comparable to my Barbolight (I compared the two; about 200 lumens) but the HOG light is a bit cooler. I used my improvised Goodman handle and belt clip. Both were ok but I’d prefer a hard handle. I still fumble a lot trying to clip my SPG back onto my lower left D-ring after checking air.
Accumulated time underwater: 4 days, 1 hour and 19 minutes.
