Frank is the man that I was certified under, also Chesteen. Together Chesteen and I made many dives with Frank on his boat, "THE SHARK KILLER." We went out to restaurants with Frank and Dee and I was fortunate in diving with him in the cave off of Stuart, etc. This was always extra tough diving and in no way for anyone inexperienced. I have many photographs of Frank and I together as well as Chesteen with Frank and Dee, etc.
I had a pleasant surprise last year when I was reading National Geographic and noting a story they were carrying on Goliath Groupers--and lo and behold--there was Frank Hammett telling all about his old grouper days off Palm Beach.
If you are a diver I highly recommend that you go to this site "FRANK HAMMETT DIVER" and read about the early days of diving off of Palm Beach and some of what I have experienced while diving with him.
