I went straight past this bit to begin with - pls pardon my manners, or lack of them.

I am another soppy Southerner (Bexhill, East Sussex) but I bet we have worse viz in the Channel than almost anywhere else in the UK - starts an arguement straight away. I've been out in pitch black and zero viz - headbutting it proved a wreck was present - and thats on a good day. And I had to walk 10 miles to and from the dive carrying my kit.

I happen to think UK diving is amongst the best in the world - when you get a good day with good viz on a wreck - wow.

Took the "nom de plume" Finless as my personal reminder that I jumped in at Scapa last year without my fins on or with me. Doh!

Started with PADI abroad, continued with PADI here and moved on to TDI.

Better late than never!  I remember someone rolling of the back of the boat with his drysuit zip open.  It took several rounds for that to calm down.  Silly ar*e.  Dive safely.

Hiya
welcome to the forum, you probably know I'm a shandy drinker too. Nice to get a few more in here.

Heh.. by that criteria, I should be "Drysuit Direct Feed Less" as a result of a trifling oversight one day..
But I can't say it rolls off the tongue

Hey Fin,

And by that token, I should be 'Turned up at the Water's Edge at Wastwater wearing my Sunglasses instead of Mask'....

Heigh-ho - we all have our moments mate. Welcome to YD. I think we've chatted on D-net once or twice but good to see you here. Get in amongst it and enjoy.

Cheers,

Welcome finless, another southerner, we're taking over the world.

Scapa, my favorite dive site, alongside Brighton of course.

You mention that you started with a Irish girlfriend, (padi broad), sorry best l could come up with.
