Dives #506 - Riv Tow - 11 September 2021

Finally got Radio Flyer back after a summer stuck in the boat yard for repairs, so J and I took it for a rip around. Winds weren't good, so we had to stick to the channel. Thus, a trip to Warbonnet City. Sure enough, loads of warbonnets (mostly decorated, but one mosshead). Grunt sculpin. Pacific Batwing Seaslug on our safety stop, along with a school of Striped Surfperch munching on stuff on the line.
