Christy Clemenson, correction CAPTAIN Christy Clemenson has returned to the Florida Sea Base to co-captain with Captain Dennis Wyatt for the Scuba Adventure and Scuba Certification crews this spring.  Captain Christy, Captain Dennis, and Scuba Commissioner Laura Kuras worked on tank valve overhauls yesterday.  The sailing staff was off.  Dr. Ellen Wyatt continued working on scuba medical forms and paperwork.  She had a tough day.

2012 Florida Sea base attendance will be a new record.  The preliminary numbers for 2013 show it will be a bigger year than 2012.  Busy, busy.

No IDC today; I get to spend a whole day in the office. Yahoo!!!  First priority – clear a spot big enough to work on at my desk.  Second priority – work on summer staff hiring.  I also need to meet with Captain Rich Beliveau on several topics and maybe Captain Paul Beal.
