DAVID NADAL  has been diving since the 1960's and, 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 islands, building up a system so he could dive the untouched reef wall off this still undeveloped island. When he first arrived here the island was powered solely by generators and necessities of life came by mail boat. 

Fifteen years ago David stayed at the only inn on the island which had a compressor to fill tanks.  A few years later the compressor shed burnt down. Fortunately at that time there was someone in the local settlement with a compressor, tanks, and an extensive knowledge of the reefs off the island.; Dave continued diving with him. His buddy's scuba tanks hadn't been tested so david shipped the tanks by mail boat all the way to Nassau for testing.

Without his own transport for his photographic and diving equipment, David needed  a way to get around on the island. He bought a small scooter.  A few years after that he was given a 9 ft.  Avon boat which had been washed up and found by his friend Al.  Next  dave bought an 8 hp. outboard engine to power his boat so he could get out to the reefs to take his underwater images.  David needed his own compressor ; a steady and reliable source of air for filling his tanks.  That dream came true when he bought an old Bauer compressor from a person on the island. He shipped the compressor to Nassau to have it checked out. No one in Nassau had a clue what to do. Then dave shipped it to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and the compressor was rebuilt. Three years later it arrived back on the island. Dave is  learning about the compressor as well ; how to change the filters and fill his tanks safely. 

Through the years Dave has taken many images.  As he has no  diving buddy, and dives alone, he knows this is dangerous and has taken steps to dive safely. 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, as the sea can get very rough.  

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 for making his underwater art.  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.
