Lady Elgin Shipwreck publication

Hi Divers,

     A little note from our one of our local authors. He has been diving a long time has realizes the more often you dive, the safer you are.
Thanks,
Mike

    If of
interest, I’ve published another article in the latest edition of
Great Lakes
Pilot
 (Vol.10 (6) p.1) on our “close
encounter” and dive on the Shipwreck of the
Lady Elgin. It illustrates how things can suddenly go badly wrong sometimes,
but ultimately good luck was with us that day. 

    You can find the Pilot at many
locations in Grand Rapids (Meijer Gas Stations), Northern Michigan, the UP and
Wisconsin. 

    By some accounts, 2014 was a bad year for Great Lakes Diving
accidents and fatalities but Scuba diving is a safe sport despite some close
calls I’ve had (one group fatality, see Diving the Straits,
http://www.greatlakespilot.com/index.html 
) and if you stay within your training and equipment
limits. 

    This article will be online in the Pilot archives at the above link
in the future.
