Hyde Wreck

17 August 2003.
My first salt water dive in the states.  This wreck is about 18 miles off shore, and takes about 1.5 hours to get there by boat from Wilmington, NC.  Knowing that I get sea sick, I took 2 Dramamine a couple of hours to going on the boat.  Unfortunately, this didn't help, and about an hour into the ride out, I got so violently ill, that I only had about 10-15 seconds between instances.  (You figure it out.)  I wasn't, however, going to be detoured from doing the dives.  So outside of being sea sick, the dives were great.  The only thing I regret is that I still don't have an external light source for my camera to get rid of the back scatter.
