Ben Aaron, a graduate of the Florida Sea Base Divemaster Academy, posted a comment asking about the future of this blog with my pending retirement, and specifically if Joe Angelo is going to inherit the site.

I am sure everyone can understand that Joe is overwhelmed with trying to grasp the controlled chaos and insanity of trying to manage the scuba programs.  I hit him with the medical constraints and review process yesterday.  At this point I have not made him aware that the blog exists.  So I do not expect him to take over the blog soon, if ever.  Additionally, I pay for the site and all expenses related thereto plus writing this in my spare time.  Maybe someone (Ben?) will express an interest in taking over when I’m finished.  For now, I will still have some ties to the base and think I can keep this going.  But beyond that, who knows?


We had a small group, three participants and three instructors arrive yesterday.  The participants are here to become certified fishing instructors for National Camp Schools.  I would think this is an all outdoor program, and if so, the weather is not going to be very cooperative.  We have a decent chance of showers today, the low for tomorrow morning is forecasted at 68 and an even 60 for Sunday morning.  On top of that, we could have winds in the 20-25 knot range with gusts to 30 knots over the weekend.


The ladies in Admin are insisting that everyone wear a costume to work today.  I think I’ll dress up as a tired, old, fat, ugly former FSB Program Director.

    As a SCUBA MB counselor and FSB Crew Leader, this blog has helped me communicate FSB happenings with my crews leading up to our trip and is the best way to hear up-to-date nuggets on-base scuttlebutt. It would be a shame for this blog to wither away as Steve has done a fabulous job – donating his time and money – to making this a useful tool for the SCUBA scouting community.

    Thanks for the very kind words, Jonathan. I’m not sure how this is going to play out, but I too hope the blog lives on. SW
