[Memo]
This was checkout dive 4 for Jason, Joe and Chris. Skills were all completed so we were working on buoyancy, trim and communication skills. We dropped to the platform and trimmed out. We worked our way back to Peace Rock. I pointed out when they were stirring up silt so they could be aware of it. When everyone was ready, we started down the rope around the back of the cavern. Chris was having problems equalizing his ears so we left the rope and cut up between the rocks. We swam around the back of the cavern. Once Jason hit 1,000 PSI we began our ascent.
