Ever wanted to try a dive and needed a buddy? What about being curious about good dives in other parts of the state, or the country? Ever wanted to hop aboard someone else's boat and meet some new friends for a day's dive? It helps when you have a handy resource to put you in touch with other divers who might be thinking along similar lines.
FS member Capt_Gerry started just such a thread to put divers in touch with another over the FS Forum. He writes:
I wanted to get a thread started in which people would post a picture or two and introduce themselves. In the long run I'm looking to create a network of divers for divers in different areas throughout Florida. You would be able to arrange group dives, ask questions for any area you're headed, and have a point of contact for a given region. In the end you might make a few friends and have a new diver buddy or two.
Get familiar with the folks on the Diver's Corner who are there to help you out. Here's the thread.
