    You don't need to use the drygloves, but you will have to use one of the dryglove ring systems to attach the silicone seals as they can't be glued on.
    You don't do much UK diving, do you? :D

    no not much uk diving , I'm afraid, 1 is i don't have any one to dive with, 2 some of the clubs ive joined are are a bit clicky
    and 3 the weather, and vis, just been to the south coast for 3 days non diving, a diver at my b&b out of a 3 day trip got one dive in,
    due to currents and winds, thats besides the point, he told me the vis on south coast is not good , but cornwell is good.
    but is over 300 miles away, i do have guildenburgh and stoney close to me, lol.

    1. You can ask on here for buddies, it's how I got started with UK diving.
    2. And that's why I've never joined a club. Keep trying though, if that's your thing, they're not all bad. Apparently.
    3. Yes, weather can be a problem. I managed two weekends in the sea last year, although I am very picky about what I'll use a pink pass for. Vis, if you are used to the Red Sea/Med/Caribbean can be a challenge, but who wants easy?
    Where on the South Coast? @barrygoss was in Plymouth last weekend and I think he dived every day.

    I've never been to Guilenbog, and have no intention of going, and I try to avoid Stoney as much as possible; I just don't find it very friendly. NDAC is much better; staff, facilities, depth all better than Stoney. Stoney's saving grace is the Stanegarth.
