Ah yes the effects of doing email after working 10 hrs .... the
corrections should be in degrees F, these were provided by the dive
computers of others on the trip which read in oF, my original ones were
from my dive watch which read in oC. Apparently, my body heat through my
wetsuit was affecting my wrist watch readings, the others were based on
computers on consoles.

Thanks for pointing out the error.
