Bob Meistrell's Birthday Dive

Went out on the Body Glove boat today for Bob Meistrell's (Co-Founder of Body Glove) birthday dive.  Bob did a dive down to 162 feet for twice his age.  I didn't do that dive because if you remember last year I posted Bob's birthday dive that he did at 100 feet and my air tank came loose down there.  So I stayed up above and got land shots.  Bob did great and actually went down to 172 feet before coming back up.  I talked to my buddy Scott Smith who is a experienced dive instructor and dives all the time.  He said that was the first time he went down that deep and it was really crazy.  You really notice a difference between 130 and 160 feet. Things just start getting weird and you really have to concentrate to keep it together.

The computer from one of the divers.  It shows 162 feet for 26 min at a temp of 56F.  Crazy stuff.
