Unhappy Is Anyone Else Scared?

Of diving in murky water? Im going ocean sailing tomorrow at first light. Today, this morning, in the next hour! I have to dive down and replace my prop shaaft zinc. I figure while im there i should give the prop and hull a once over with a chissel and stiff bristled brush.

To be honest im already nervous. Tide is going out i have plenty of depth but all the rain here has reduced visibility to two feet or less.. ill be in my snorkel and mask and man it just freaks me out. Im REALLY not looking forward to this and wondered if there were any other cowardly lions to make me feel less like a scared dufus?

Plus there is a mean tarpon hanging around my boat. Hes been eyeing me for days just daring me to get in.. i think hes got plans of malicious intent...
