West Palm Beach

"By 7:30am we were on the boat with Captain Mike and Eli, Ed, and Big Al (the three guys who are responsible for Shark Diver Magazine). We motored out for 35 minutes to Shark Canyon and dropped in to photograph sharks (duh!). Eli wanted to get a photo with the magazine -- and sharks all around him -- but the magazine all but dissolved as soon as he took it out of the dry bag. Too bad! Anna's strobes also refused to fire (as we are all familiar with, they worked fine on dry land, but failed to work at depth). It was a fun dive! Nurse sharks and caribbean reef sharks congregated all around us, giving us ample opportunity to take photos. Best of luck to Shark Diver Magazine! The premiere issue has just hit newsstands."

Oh yes -- Adam Nash tells me that I must put this up on my website. The note attached to the video states, "This is a video taken in 6000 feet of water. An undersea robot is sawing a 3mm wide slit (1/10th of an inch ... remember that width) in a pipeline. The pressure inside the pipeline is 0 psig, while the pressure outside is 2700 psi, or 1.3 tons per square inch. Then a crab comes along...." [see the video: crab vs. pipe]
