Blown out last weekend, couldnt go Saturday as rugby match here, due to go sunday.

Phoned at 6pm to say "dont bother coming, the boat is broken again".

There ends my last chance to get some practice in before Cornwall trip next week.

So err no - i didnt have a nice dive

Lovely little bimble on the Perone in Lyme Bay, best viz I've seen on it 4-5m, and lighter than usual.

Boma today, all going well.

S.S Kintyre from the Clyde shore. Wasn't much fun between the current, viz, depth, deco penalties and old guy shouting at us. Still it was nice to get back into t'water! I just don't think I'm up to going all the way to the wreck on this dive now.

Jumped onto Andy's boat yesterday with the YD crew, first UK Sead dive this year, first with the 10's too, so well pleased with the result. Might have been nice though if the LDS hadnt gassed me up with 180, spose I should have checked last weekend really, ended up a bit low but the SAC was back to 25(ish) so not too upset. Down the shot it became VERY dark at 20m very eerie, saw the wreck about 1/2 mtr before I hit it!
Nice lobby, small shoal of something at the edge of viz. (like about 1 1/2 mtrs. All in though enjoyed the dive with Digger as buddy. 36 mins and a small bit of deco on the back of the pooter. Got home in 2 hrs checked the manual and realised its time to replace the battery. Enjoyed the dive, didnt want to do the second one, just a tad beyond my current experience I think.

For those not into hunter/gatherer need read no further.






Four lobster today, diving on the Boma is like shopping at Tesco


First had eggs, so let go, second was easy too. Third was just walking around in the open. News must have got around and he decided to give up easy. Saw the last just before we had decided to go up, much bigger than the others, so they went back. Will go nicely with the scallops and lobby from yesterday.


I know some wont be happy with me, but to quote Porg - Bite me.

Been down at Selsey myself this weekend, dived the Gascony and the Teapot (Bigitta) yesterday, the Shirala and the, err...  Shirala again today from Skipper's boat.

Gascony and first dive on the Shirala were superb, Teapot and second Shirala dive suffered from viz problems, but were still entertaining


Full report once I've had some sleep.

I've got no problem with folk lifting a sensible amout of sea-food Adran, but is four not just a wee bit excessive. I mean, one for the pot and a handful of Scallops is cool, but four, IMHO, is a bit OTT.
Next thing you'll be telling us you lifted four Gold bars and never left any for the rest of us........


Just my thoughts!

EDIT-Sorry, really must RTFP in future!

St Abbs 10&11

Wuddy/Skelig
13Degrees surface, water at 15m 7degrees vis 1 to 2 metres.
No life except billions of dead mens fingers and brittle stars,oh apart for 1 large octopus trying to eat a large crab.
Lots of swell .

Glanmire
5 degrees at 30.9m vis 5+metres, few pollack and one or two Cod,,wrestled with a lobby,it won!!Only wanted to show it to my bud,,
The weather was overcast which led to a very VERY dark dive,

We were surprised at the lack of divers up this weekend. Dived with Peter Gibson who was as fab as ever..01890771681 if you want to use him ,,tell him the Fire Lads from West Yorkshire recomended  him..

Dive safely

No problem Peter  


I rarely get lobsters, I am very weary of those claws, but everything went right this time. The number just amazed me, hence my boasting, justed needed to SHOUT about it.  
The number I have put back with eggs far outnumber the ones I've kept. All the edible crabs around ATM are females in berry too.  
 


My general rule is that I take nothing on a Sunday, as cooking it etc after getting home take too much time. However today a BBQ beckons...

Four gold bars - sound like you've been listening to Status Quo  
Almost

I think every one was happy today, excepth the DO, who's dry-suit zip broke.

Dived HMS Vestal yesterday, 70m off Phuket, on Trimix course. Water temp 23C at 70m, 31C at surface. Visibility a disappointing 2.5 - 3m so looking forward to revisiting in better conditions.

On Friday I dived the Canyon and the Blue Hole in Dahab.  Water temp was 21C, visibility 15-20m.  There was the usual fish soup, including a big Napoleon wrasse.

Now back in sunny Wolverhampton, suffering from post holiday blues
