Bob Sweeney and Kevin Ailes were undergoing extreme symptoms of diver withdrawal and needed to get wet quick. Of all the places around they traveled Gull Lake in Ross Town ship. The only place open was the Prairie View boat launch on the north side. They ended up with about 30 minutes down time even with them inadvertently going their separate ways once underwater.
The max depth obtained was 48′, air temperature was a warm 55° F, water temperature about 38°F and underwater visibility about 8 feet . It was a good thing they had compasses with them as the fog settled in making surface visibility rather sketchy.
It was a Fun work up dive before Bob’s News Years Day dive at Gilboa.
