Dive Report: Daytona12 Feb 2012 We went to the right which turned out to be towards the stern on the port side for a few mins came back and went forward over the forward hold area and crossed to the starboard side . Didn't want to get into too much deco so turned back .After 5 mins we were back at the chain putting a strobe on really takes the stress out of finding your way back as long as you go in the right direction of course. Had a min deco at the anchor which was 32m. Back at the surface to find the current was still running strongly. Alastair and Phil went in and went toward the bow same dive as we had. After a S.I. of 1hr 20mins we went back in went to the bow on the port side which is falling away the bow sprite is still recognisable with the usual covering of old fishing net had more of a look at the jumble which i think is the forward hold .Lots of the usual large anemones and one large fish which startled Andy. I didn't see it. Back to the welcoming strobe .Andy was showing 5mins deco I had 1 min ??. Got the strobe off and started up .28mins on the first dive used a 100bar , 30mins on the second used 115bar.
