Wibble you need a CCR lol
Yeah, Leigh Bishop has the boat for the week and will be doing deep offshore stuff to max 70m. I declined the space until I knew what they were diving as I'd rather not pay for stuff we can do from Fearless anyway. Glad I didn't as I'll be off diving for at least the next few days,
Aas we passed over the Shambles I grabbed the rail and found to my cost that some knob had failed to safely stow his fishing gear. The result was a hook deeply embedded in my thumb!
The only positive was I got to take the fish home!
I think Donegal counts as the British Isles, so I beg to differ. I had 160 minutes on, and above, HMS Audacious today.
Props, rudders, massive anchors, torpedoes tubes, Clarkson cases, 13.5 inch shells and the guns from which at least some of them would have been fired.
A tad better than any dive I ever had in Lyme Bay, even if we did have cloud cover and quite some chop on the way out.
So good, we’re going back again tomorrow.
Yeah, been there done that (a few times) and the cost per minute of bottom time is measured in pounds, rather than pence. In any case it is outside the UK and hundreds of miles from the draft Leffe Blonde they provide in the Royal Portland Arms
They have draft Leffe Blonde? OMG, Portland looks better every day!
Yep, golden happy juice on draught in the proper glasses.
Thankfully, it is a 2 mile walk from our house so unlikely to be habit-forming.
More Pounds per minute spunked today when I could have been saving money diving the Banks or DG Range.
This time I wasted my hard-earned on a load of Sherman tanks littering the sea bed at 64m.
Will I never learn?
Later I’ll console myself with some Kinnegar ale, ‘cos there’s no Leffe Blond. Unless I go to any large supermarket where it’s stacked up with the Fosters, Carling and other mainstream slop.
Got a car share to get to Skye next May - we've been trying to work out how to get the wife there at the end of the live aboard to have a few days holiday together in this beautiful area, now solved.
Train to Kyle of Lochalsh and bus from there?
Taxi to Crewe 30m, Train min 10h15m, Bus min 1hr30m. So a minimum of 12 hours travelling.
Now she will drive, 9hr15m over two days (or three) with opportunity to stop off at points of interest along the way.
It's a lovely drive, like being in a foreign country. Scotland!
It's also pretty easy to navigate as there's just no roads to confuse you!
Accidentally took my little Olympus camera, rated to 15m, down to 21 yesterday and it still works.
I expected 15m to have a fair margin of safety built in, but still expected the worst.
Any pictures to share with us?
Need to work out how, always get the ‘too big’ message.
There was a bit in the paper yesterday about a diver off Lulworth who found an IPhone on his dive, and it was still working. Apparently belonged to a Canadian holiday maker. I bet that will need a good wash out.
Woohoo. Passed my inspiration mod 2 ccr decompression course today. Now I have got used to the rebreather it is the best bit of dive kit I have bought. Now time to get some hours in on the unit.
@Leeb2018 well done, time to book some great wreck dives.
@Vanny Cheers. Tony is a good instructor. I am already looking at what wreck dives are going on over next couple of weeks.
rEvo day, excited.
After a year of thinking about wings, I'm off to Selby today to meet John Hewitt (Red Hat) and talk through what will work for me. I'm looking for one that I can swap backplate from steel to aluminium for flying, which will mean diving the same kit where-ever I am. I'm planning on a 30lb wing as it will be for single cylinder only (after much research on the web!). Haven't sorted out where lead will go - weight belt or what?
