Right boys and girls before I go off to Sharm I'd like to have a bit of a dip next Sat.

Thinking of N.Berwick, Abbs, Farnes, maybe even over to the West and Oban.

Anybody up for a bit of Scottish/N English aqua related nonsense.

BTW Do you like my new avatar - cool innit. Ta Heads

Sorry, I'll be otherwise engaged (or married hopefully depending upon the time :eek:gle: )

Can't see any way around that one... :whip:

Gav

yeah its the Aedura (sp?) and your right the boots are piss poor, i had it hung up one day rinsing it down with the hose after a days diving and could see a white line across the heel that the water wouldn't move, so I moved in for a closer look and nearly shat when I realised that the white was actually a long line of worn down rubber with white material sticking out... I quickly checked the other heel and realised that it was getting to be nearly the same.

Gutted is an understatement as the suit was only bought halfway through last season and I noticed it early in this season, but I've just refused to be without my suit and so kept diving it in a constantly deteriating condition, unfortunately though, I'm now wet on every dive and so it has had to go in for new boots.... everyone say "Awwwwww!"

the only thing i can suggest to you Gav is.....

Pick those bloody feet up!

I think my habit of shuffling along to those far away entry/exit points hasn't helped at all, I'm now aware though and try not to slide my heels into the next step all of the time, other than that, a great drybag!

I'm wondering if I get platform heels fitted people at Abbs might laugh at me... wadcha think??

As far as dates go me ol'cock... any weekend is good for me, I could even be talked into a midweek jaunt sometime  :biggrin:

I am sure Maltese Falcon ( MF diver ) and myself would be interested in a day out - same-day traveling distance from Bolton if possible.

You boys will insist on going plenty in the far flung. Any chance of any dives around the NW/Wales side of the gaff??

Come on!! You know you want it - don't make me beg!!

Either way, safe guys.

Far flung Bren?

Only down the road for me!!!

I think the best thing to do is get and idea of the weather and then take it from there. No point saying Abbs it is if it looks like it's gonna be lumpy.

All venues considered.

The drysuit!! she back!! :biggrin:

I'm picking her up tomorrow night, so I'm ready for the weekend, although I've been looking at the BBC Weather website and the outlook for Berwick on Tweed both Saturday and Sunday is strong Northerly's... not good, not good at all.... So it might be inland yet, dunno... thoughts anyone?

Dave,

Met office saying northerly but maybe only 2-3. I don't think we'll know until late today/tomorra for deffo. Is there anyone in Abbs that could give us a likely steer.

Other options are west coast (loch long, fyne) prob too far for you or hole in ground - capernshite)

Gavster prays for change of weather !!!

Yeah Gav, I can ring 'Scoutscroft Dive Centre' the owners Peter and Amanda always give great viz/condition reports as divers are usually landing there for fills or they are actually taking divers in themselves so the info is usually first class. I'll call them tomorrow afternoon and let you know.

PaulC are you up for a trip if I swing past yours, we can share ex's... that's expenses not old girlfriends.. altho....
