That Barracuda was shadowing us for a while before it came up behind us and I snapped that pic and it shot off. Barracudas are creepy bastards.

Kind of reminds me of Archie Luxury.

Shucks TB. Thats kind of you to say :oops:

I think the longer a person dives the more they want redundancy and back-ups in their equipment. Lots of occasional divers snicker at the use of dive watches but I like to have backups for my bottom time and my air. At some of the more serious sites people won't even take you out unless you carry 2 computers. Given my love of dive watches using one as a back-up for my bottom time is a no-brainer. And truth be told I refer to my watch to track time more often underwater because its way easier to read. Just the same as on land. For instant readability a well designed 3 hander absolutely shits all over the digital displays available on most computers.
