Hmm, Boadacea seems good.
'scuse the wrong forum!
Booked on both of these:
Skindeep offshore: Tues 3rd July - Nuremburg - 60m
SkinDeep: Wed 19 Sep - 10:30 - HMS Boadicea - 50m
Stuff the gas costs!
Also three of us are on the M2+second on Friday 29th June if anyone else wanted to join us.
Weather gods permitting see you on the Boadica then ,
Dave are you coming to play ?
We were blown out at Scarborough today, so a couple of us went to Stoney. On the second dive my OSTC mk 2 screen went black as I descended. Had a backup, so finished the dive, but the screen is still black. Managed to download the dive log with subsurface and it's recorded the dive ok, so it looks like it's the screen itself that's crapped out.
I've emailed HW to see if there's anything can be done, but not holding out much hope as it's an older model.
Anyone got a used OSTC or Shearwater going cheap?
Had they been weekend trips advertised far enough in advance, I'd have signed up for the lot except the Nuremberg as it's a rummage dive. The Meknes would have been blown out

If you do get a new computer and your current computer has a bungee case/housing is be interested in your housing, mine has cracked.
No problem. I'll let you know how I get on.
I had a tantrum and broke one of my cylinders.
And my Scurion battery started to die after about 3.5hrs on a moderate setting.
They are small batteries. You probably need to run it at home to see how long it lasts on the various brightness settings. For wreck divers, loosing a torch is inconvenient. For caving with diving it's mission critical!
Do you keep your backups on your helmet with the Scurion?
It’s in the bath at the moment. 20 mins so far.
I have two back-ups on my helmet and would sometimes have a 3rd on my harness, or a second primary on my hand.
How do you break a cylinder?
Last time i saw it done was a sidemount cylinder behind a car, and ill-advised use of reverse gear...
Found a large net on the Buccaneer that had some crabs tangled up in it. I did try to cut a few free but wasn’t reall getting anywhere. Had to abandon as short on time.
Sad when you want to help but can’t
Goody bag full?
Knocked the valve, resulting in a calamitous loss of gas by the time I’d managed to fight my way into the bag and switch it off, which, after having transported the bloody thing for about 1.5 hrs underground, resulted in my removing it from the bag and placing it on the floor in a rather ungracious manner, thus damaging the threaded section.
Need some armoured covers for the tins!
I think an anger management book might be cheaper.
How useless are BSAC membership services!?
Back in January I wanted to move payment of my membership fee from our joint account to another account I set up for personal spending. I phoned them up, explained the situation and gave them all the details.
The following month I had a letter from them saying they'd been unable to collect the money because the bank said that a direct debit hadn't been set up and could I please fill in the form and send it in. Fair enough but you have to wonder why they didn't just say that in the first place. I filled in the form, sent it off and thought no more of it.
A couple of months later I had another one, I'm starting to get a bit annoyed now but gave them the benefit of the doubt thinking perhaps it had got lost in the post.
Today I've had another of the damn things, are these people totally incompetent?
Pretty much, yes.
I do about 100 returns a year with a handful being a bit of a pain to sort and some needing to join to get on courses
fast etc. Membership dept. has always come through and sorted any issues, so in my experience at least this part of
BSAC is perfectly competent
I do though take some responsibility myself in that if I phone I always follow it up with an email to confirm what was
said and agreed at the time. This can catch you out though, had an embarrassing moment once with an Insurance
company when I was adamant what i'd said on the phone and on looking back on the email, er no I hadn't
Had to eat humble pie on that one
