Actually did not plan to get involved with the hole thing (not really Boca Chica related...) But I am just wondering how you manage to get stung by a man-o-war MANY TIMES and one is diving there almost daily since twenty years and never came across one....
I have no definite answer to your question. My only explanation is that I am SWIMMER. Not diver. And the Portuguese is roaming practically on the surface. And me too. Not in the deeper echelons.
Or you imply that I made up my burns from the MOW ? Over the whole body. Funny.
