    In my room aching now, but I'll be over there around 0830, so might well see you then.

    My new Russian electronics may take as long as 23 days to arrive. Bugger.

    After all the helpful advice on drysuits and arranging a guided dive for tomorrow, I'm down with a bug. Not up to man flu, but too much of a risk for the friend we were visiting as she is frail. So, I've been left at home.:grumpy:

    Cheers, it's a one off z tray (£50) of minimalist tray with a mounded handle, it has a brass bolt snap mounted to the top of the z, the light is a 60 degree light with a stand up mount (custom mounted to the z handle as a normal mount won't fit) and a go pro. No photos of the rig as it was assembled the day before its first outing.

    I hope the new "owner" enjoys it. I've logged the MAC address of the camera with go pro in the hope they download the go pro app.

    For those that may see it, the camera is mounted at the base of the z in the picture above (the lower pic) the light is on the top on a speacialist fold out extension that gives another 5cm of extension and separation from camera. A brass bolt snap is mounted via cave line to the hole at the top of the handle bulge.
    The mounting for the light extrudes below the mount as it's a made to fit item.
    I'm more annoyed because it stopped me filming some students today who were doing well but doubted their position in the water.

    Have you called them to see if it's been handed in?

    I asked every time I went to the office today. No luck I'm afraid.

    Could it still be underwater, or do you think that it "fell off" on shore? Not that far away, I left a wax jacket in the Costa, M50 services about a week ago that disappeared. Old and not expensive, but leaves a sour taste in your mouth.:depressed:

    At Capernwray for the first time, whilst reinforcing 'good practice' with the guy I was instructing that day as we picked up his cylinder after an air fill. We asked to use the O2 analyser to check whats in there, to be told by the compressor operator that there's only air in there.

    I said something along the lines of "I know, just we'd like to make sure we know whats in the cylinder". And the operator starts to become a little confrontational and I held my ground.

    Op - "If there's anything other than air in there, I'll be charging you more for it."
    Me - "If you've done that, I'd rather know about it now, rather than find out when we're in the water."

    And he makes a point of making me look like an arsehole as the analyser tells us what we wanted it to do. Trainee and I mark up the cylinder and rock on with our last dive.

    Service like that makes you realise just how good sites like Vobster and NDAC actually are!

    I'll drop a rigged Ali 40 filled with O2 into the hands Of the person that finds and returns the rig.

    I may be down there on Thursday. Do you know what area were you diving when you lost it?
