We need divers to sign on for the following BAREG 2019 Benson Survey dives:

First call:
25&26 May (Sat&Sun Memorial Day weekend) – Overnight trip on the M/V Grand Adventure to recce the Benson in advance of the survey in July. The dive boat has room for six divers and we have four open spots remaining. We’ll leave from and return to Virginia Beach after anchoring overnight on the wreck and doing a total of four dives. Tasks include taking video/stills of prominent features, and identifying points for two moorings and potential baseline locations. The cost is $467 and that amount includes meals on the boat. Each diver will have to bring enough tanks/back&deco gas for four dives.
