As mentioned in my last post, many of the Florida Sea Base staff members will be departing for college soon.  This means that reinforcements are wanted, needed and appreciated for the last week or two of the season.  I mentioned that Scuba Instructor “Mustang” Potter is here.  So too is Scuba Instructor Paul Mangone.  (And there may be others that I have yet to cross paths with.)

And YOU could be here too.  ALL departments could use a boost.  You can call the Director of Program, Tim Stanfill, if you are interested in a job but aren’t sure where your talents are most needed.  Tim’s direct line is 305-664-5614.

When I say, “YOU could be here too”, I realize not everyone can be here; take perennial reinforcement Captain/Scuba Instructor Kari Dahlquist for example.  She has completed her degree at SUNY Maritime College and is now pursuing all requirements to become an Admiral.


That’s Captain “Wanna Be Admiral” Kari Dahlquist on the far right during lifeboat drop drills.  You go, Girl!!!

The REST of you could be at Sea Base.  “The weather is here.  Wish you were beautiful”.  The water is warm and clear so come on down – and hurry!


Don’t tell anyone, but while the Pacific is getting hammered by tropical weather, we are flying under the radar on the Atlantic side.  Don’t get me wrong, it ain’t over ’til it’s over and it only takes one to have a catastrophic season.  We are looking great for now and, if it is God’s will, may finish the summer without a significant wind event.

The Florida Sea Base has a 20% 24 hours a day for the next several days according to the National Weather Service.  The cloud cover will bring slightly cooler temperatures.
