Max's Wreck

Thanksgiving weekend was a tease with weather.  The forecast looked great in the early part of the week and I was making phone calls trying to possible setup an overnight offshore trip.  Unfortunately, due to people traveling around for the holiday and the weather forecast going from great to awful to good, an offshore trip was not in the cards.  The weather did turn around and we planned to go diving on Saturday with a max depth of 165 feet.

Leaving the Inlet
 Saturday morning we left the dock around 8 am aboard the "Big Mac" and decided to set out for Max's Wreck.  For more info about Max's Wreck checkout the story about its identification (Here).  The seas greeted us with calm 2-3' swell and less then 10 knots of wind.  After a rather uneventful ride out to the wreck we made a few passes and checked out the direction of the drift.  I few minutes later we were given the signal to drop the hook and hooked in to the wreck.
