This was my second dive for the Wreck Diver Specialty. My task this dive was to map the wreck and my penetration point for a later dive on Thursday. I failed art in school, and i will be the first to admit that I can not draw anything, so trying to draw a map of a wreck that someone else will be able to use to dive the site and penetrate the wreck was very difficult for me.

I located 2 possible penetration locations with good areas to tie off a penetration line both outside and just inside the wreck structure. I wanted to located a second one just incase for some reason I was not able to use my first choice on Thursday when we come back to penetrate the wreck.
