Dunno about the bottom of the Atlantic, last time I heard she was sat in about 83m.... Should be good though.

On its way, should have it soon & can't wait.

Interesting article in Diver by Leigh Bishop today about the Britannic expedition he did last year.  Slightly confused by the author's references to it being on telly under 'Inside Britannic' cos that's the GUE expedition that's aired recently.  Not an RB in sight.

It doesn't matter where it is, the only boat around here that'll do it is Stevensons and because i haven't got a ticket for trimix, he won't let me on the boat. I could pay him £700 for the course but i think that's a bit steep to do a couple of dives.  I'll just have to make do with the M1.

Well its only money Doug, they'll give you some more next week.


Anyway, think of how much you could save up by not diving over the next 4 months. Of course, just a fiver!

I totally agree with that. The problem being, i can get the  gas for it anywhere in Plymouth without showing quals. I can't get to the dive site as 'Watcher' is the only boat that goes out to it.  I suppose if i wait until Stevenson is off on one of his glory hunting trips i've got half a chance, the trouble is he usually takes 'Watcher' with him.

I've looked into doing course with other places but i'll end up having to bite the bullet and give the money to Deep Blue. It won't be wasted though as he is an excellent insructor and runs a well organised set up.  Just a bit expensive for a couple of drills and proving that you know what you're doing.

Hmmm.. Some difficulties with telly scheduling here.

Have a look at Leigh Bishop's site. According to his site, last year's Britannic Expedition is being shown on the 11th too, which is A Good Thing.

However the link to Nat Geo's schedule for the day What's on the 11th shows no sign of the Flying Enterprise (whee, managed to spell it right this time
).  This is A Bad Thing. Ah well, 1 out of 2 ain't bad. In fact it's still ferkin excellent.
