So, some friends lost a sail boat rudder in Lake Bryan a few weeks ago, so some friends (Jeff, Marc, Brad, Phil, and Zach) and I decided to conduct a salvage dive operation.
Jeff has a pretty good writeup here about the dive, but he failed to mention the carrying of scuba gear about half-a-mile down a road. And when Jeff said it was dark in the lake, he wasn't kidding. I bought a new dive light that was the brightest carried by the local SCUBA shop since I knew it would be murky; if I went down 10' deep, held the light at arm's length and pointed it back at myself, I could not see any evidence of a light in front of me.
I have found a new respect for the blind.
