Captain Roy Smith gives the divers aboard the Sea Eagle a briefing on the rules of the boat and information about the shipwreck dive they are about to experience. There were 17 divers and four master divers aboard the Sea Eagle, a dive boat owned by Captain's Corner, the longest running dive shop in Old Town Key West. The divers visited The USNS General Hoyt S.Vandenberg, resting 150 feet below the surface and rising nearly 40 feet above the ocean floor. The captain and crew are concerned that if the spill reaches the Keys, it could devastate their business and drive divers to other areas of Florida. Manuel Martinez/Staff
