Any of you guys catch the new series on Spike Diamond Divers? Starring John Adalot (sp?) and crew out of Coronet Bay Wa. It was cool to see Wa get on tube and the world credit given to some of the sea men of our area. John has been running the vessel rescue out of Coronet Bay for years and is a very unique, nice, and cool dude. Some salty dudes that on that show and it looks like the shit is going to get knee deep this season. I bought my second Harley from John Jr a couple years ago, pretty cool custom work them guys put out on HotRods, Harleys, and Boats.

    I've know John Sr. for years and his son went to school with my kids. Great guys.
    I've tried talking to them about the show and they are being VERY tight-lipped about things. Most I can get out of them is "watch the show."

    If you guys haven't seen the show you can catch it on Spike TV on Wed. nights.

    Yeah - I've caught the show a couple times. Did not know the guys were local...

    First impressions......the capt. looks lazy and his son seems cocky and lazy.....boils down to whatever tape the producer of the show keeps and what ends up on the cutting room floor..they can portray whatever they want to get ratings....

    I'm sure they are solid if you guys vouch for them.....interesting show, wonder how many carats they sucked-up in the end.......

    Yea I have seen the show, and love it so far, and as you said, I was going to be looking for new stuff and maybe signs of retirement from the home front.
    If they struck it rich, I would expect a big change/move from area.

    There are some subtle changes happening now and if you've know them you would notice. But this has been home to them for a few generations now....they'll never move from Whidbey. Retirement??? John ...MAYBE, This boy?...Hell he hasn't really even started working yet! JR...Yup I think he's more than ready to retire.

    Of course this is all MHO and speculation.
