    Anybody diving this weekend I could tag along with?

    I'm free on Friday, Saturday or Monday.

    Stoney would be the closest for me, but don't mind traveling a bit

    Looks like it, Aaron. We've not decided on a site yet, but if my buddy doesn't object, you're welcome to join us. I'll drop him a line and see what's happening.

    The sea is open but some people seem to be averse to salt water

    I'd love to get in the sea more often. Living where I am, I'm not far off as far from the sea as you can get in England. That means around 3-4 hours drive to get to somewhere reliable or that has regular boats. Bridlington is about the closest, a couple of hours away, but shore diving depends how the weather has been for decent vis and there are very few dive boats. I'm not in a club so don't have access to boats that way.

    Logistically and financially, getting to the coast is worth it for a weekend. I'll hopefully get half a dozen trips this year. I want to dive more often than that, so if I just want to get a dive or two, then get home to the family, it has to be a quarry unfortunately.

    Dosthill was just as I remember. Vis was around a metre at best and we found a couple of rusty vans! The dive went well despite that.
    No second dive as my manifold developed a leak when it was being filled. I wasn't too disappointed. I'm now off to investigate what caused the manifold to leak.
