Sometimes it is difficult to know exactly how to begin when
revealing a significant change; but change will happen no matter
how we word it. It will indeed be a new year for the crew of
the Surface Interval - a year without a boat.
After 15 wonderful seasons, we have sold the Surface
We are not giving up diving, rather we will enjoy diving along
side you instead of serving you as crew.
It has been our absolute pleasure to serve the local dive community
and we have met and made so very many good friends over the
years. The old maxim is that "parting is such sweet sorrow."
The sorrow - the goodbyes, of course. The sweet part is having
the freedom to travel when and where we want. Selling the boat
gives us the opportunity to travel more and explore other places,
something we were seldom able to do easily while we juggled
our charter schedule and winter prep time.
Interval has returned to her roots in Louisiana, where she
was built. Crew boats are in short supply after Hurricane Katrina
and we received an unprecedented number of inquiries from that
area. It was a nostalgic moment as we watched her "wide
load" roll down the road today in the knowledge that we'll
never see her again. Memories abound of lobsters caught, fish
speared, treasures found, notable encounters with nature in
and on the water, and countless days of joy, laughter and great
diving with friends. If you want a photo retrospective, check
out our photo gallery while you still can at www.surfaceinterval.com
We have a remainder stock of Surface Interval apparel
(T-shirts, tank tops, sweat shirts, sweat pants, and hats) in
sizes from small to double-X. We will sell them until they run
out, first come first served. Contact Trish if you're interested.
We extend a sincere thank you to all the dive shops and many
individuals who have supported us over the years. We will miss
the weekly interaction, but look forward to continued diving
with you in new and different locations.
With best wishes for a wonderful new year,
The crew of the Surface Interval
