The CDC’s Bra-Vo! Entry

Blue bra decorated with a scuba theme

The Thousand Island Arts Center is having their Bra-Vo Show starting September 14, 2102. Exhibitors decorate bras (some are really out of this world), and people bid via a silent auction for them. We won one two years ago and have redonated it (the Kissing Fish). I have made a new one on behalf of the club. It is called “Diving the Valley (the Seaway Valley that is),” and it is dedicated to the hope that a cure may be found so that every day can…

New Maggie L Mooring

The Maggie L was a wooden schooner that sank after a collision with a steel freighter on November 4th, 1927, as she was leaving the main shipping lane towards Clayton.

Now the Maggie L has a new mooring thanks to Tom at 1000 Island Ready Mix Concrete, Junior Rusho and his crew on the Maple Grove, Kathy and Dennis McCarthy, and Ken Kozin! Providing…

June 16th 2012 Dive on the Islander

Hello CDC, we had 9 divers show up for the June 16th, 2012 dive on the Islander!!

There was a bit of boat traffic that day and I think there were at least 2 other classes going on at the Islander while we were there.  The ramp was more congested than an LA freeway during rush hour at…

May 19th 2012 St Louis Dive

Well the CDC started the 2012 dive season with a great turn out for the St Louis dive in Cape Vincent. The weather was fantastic and the water was flat. The water temp was around 80……minus 25. Vis was great. The best part of the dive was it did not end in a “Bang” like last year, which was a good thing. (Editors note: I am still convinced that Skip shot at me, windows do not just explode like that..lol) It was fantastic to see…
