Our very own brother from the OBD Dev Team, Terry Kerby..aka Makai!

This was posted today on Yahoo, and will probably see air time on CNN, BBC..etc. What a major find!

Wow. Even found the engine telegraph on the floor nearby. Looks fairly pristine considering it was a sinkex target.

Great find, Makai - that must be a most adventurous job!

This video I think shows their marine base, from where they explore the sea around Hawaii.
It was even used as a location for a chase in the great TV series "MAGNUM, P.I." -
T.C. even landed on their pier with his helicopter.

The pier can be seen here at 0:56.
And the rest of the scenes makes you want to live there. Makai, you lucky man!
