DAVID NADAL has been diving since the 1960's. Committed to his craft as a diver and underwater photographer,
he has been visiting and exploring the outer islands of the Bahamas for many years. For the past 15 years he has returned
to one of the lower undeveloped islands, building up a system so he could dive the untouched reef wall. CROOKED ISLAND
The island was powered solely by generators and all necessities arrived by mail boat. Making himself at home, David stayed
at the only inn on the island at the time which had a compressor to fill tanks. He worked with locals who knew the reefs and
dove with them.
Without his own transport for his photographic and diving equipment, he purchased a small scooter
and then acquired a 9' Avon boat which had been washed ashore. Adding a small horsepower outboard engine he was able to get
out to the reefs
to shoot his underwater images.
Finally he obtained an old Bauer compressor which he had rebuilt
in Florida. For solo dives, he has added a second small pony tank and keeps a kill string attached to his wrist so if he falls
out of the boat the string will stop the engine. He buoys the reef in two places near the island marina so it's easy
to get back to safety if the sea and the weather change.
His small boat holds the main scuba tank and pony tank, a back
pack of his fins, mask, regulator, a weight belt, a main anchor, rope, and a gas tank to power the boat and a
bucket to hold his special underwater camera. This system allows David to go out to any part of the reef at any time when
the right light and conditions appear allowing him to capture his special underwater photos.
