    Any one up for a day diving?

    I am a padi rescue diver with 85 dives logged.

    I am open to diving at vobster, chepstow, guildenburg, bucklands, wraysbury, or stoney.

    I can probably make a Sunday at Stoney this weekend or next. I'll check if the missus has anything planned and get back to you.

    Iain what you got in mind.

    Splinter I up for diving at stoney again. Upgraded to twin 12s now. Dived vobster with them. Just seemed bit head heavy.

    Alex let me know as this is nice and local to me.

    (They're new, just wondering if there's anything obvious that might cause the tail-light issues)

    Also @Leeb2018, what fins do you use?

    I can't dive this weekend on account of being in the doghouse because of last weekend's diving -- have to do gardening as a penance :vomit:

    It seems like my tanks are a little high but have no adjustment to move them lower on bands and wing. I just ordered some heiver fins. I had my old fins since I started diving and they are too big and light. I looking at the apeks rk3 or maybe apeks rk3 hd.

    There always next weekend for diving.

    I use Hollis F1 find which are very effective and heavy to counteract gas in my drysuit legs.

    What sort of tins do you have?

    The new house, that we are moving into next week, has a bit of grass but no garden as such, so almost no gardening :joyful:. We realised that, other than looking out of the windows at our current lovely garden, we didn't spend a lot of time in it except to work. We've got nice views from the new house and will visit a National Trust when we want to see flowers.

    The grass needs its first cut of the year. It would probably get a 5 star rating on places for sheep to eat. Flowers, yuck. They're only sexual organs... and for partners to feign sorrow for some transgression.

    The trick is to designate the green area as meadow, not lawn - this means that at worst it needs a cut once a month at a high setting through the summer, at best a strim late spring and autumn.

    My lawn had third mow of the year yesterday. I am diving in the sea tomorrow and on Sunday I have something less sensible planned.

    So, on Saturday I did my first proper wreck dive since October (Bombardon Unit in the harbour doesn't count) and the viz was 2m and today I completed a second sprint triathlon :)
