    Tried the 1/4" trim, it was about 90% effective and maybe a bit more length will help too - will try the vaseline as well.

    Facial hair and mask seals.

    I got lazy over Xmas & NY and am now, for the first time in my life a beard owner and it's almost house trained. (Ok it's only a goatee); I'm really enjoying my 10 second tidy up shave of a morning....

    Yeah not much fun for those involved at all. We're now embarking on reconstruction, pleased to say that we've fast-tracked the building and planning approvals for the rebuild of the Dunalley bakery,...

    Fair comment.

    I'm fairly risk averse in some ways and waiting for the hammer to fall with something like that would definitely be enough to have me sell my gear and having turned 50 a couple of...

    So you think a 30% risk of recurrence of something that when happening the second time around has a high risk of killing you is acceptable? What do your family think? I know at least 5 people who I'm...

    I use a weightplate I got with my Nomad; I dive 2 x 12L Fabers, DUI membrane suit with a set of Arctics at the moment (summer). This needs 2 x 4lb (made em myself) and a 3lber. I normally put these...

    Me too - pretty well anything small enough to post. Computer, regs, hoses, wing, in fact just about everything that wasn't small spares - but even some of them too - most of it is half the price here...

    Turn off offending tank, breathe down good tank - in the unlikely event that this doesn't get me home, swap good valve over onto disabled post and breathe. Problem solved.

    Depends where you are side-mounting; on my Bali trip last month, wearing a Probe fleece top and 2mm neo shorts, a pair of Ali 80s was fine. Here in Tas, in 12C water now, maybe 16C in Feb and wearing...

    Such reports are greatly exaggerated; huge areas are off limits to fishing and huge areas are hundreds of km away from agricultural runoff etc.

    Yep, 680 miles south of the southernmost extent of the GBR near Bundaberg and a fair way further east too - you'd be off your nut to drive from Newcastle to China via the reef.
