<font color='#000080'>Right, here is the deal.

The company i work for has just sold a spanky new boat to a guy who specialises in taking divers out to deep wrecks.  Now these guys are deep buggers, but like a nice fizz off dive afterwards in 25- 40m.  The skipper has kept the marks that he has been given and consequently has some very much undived wrecks off the north east coast.  Im talking between the Tyne and Amble here, for those of you who dont know......

If we are up for this, then fine, i will be very willing to organise a trip.  B&B accomodation is availible locally (he sails out of Blyth, but i reccomend staying in Amble, about 20 mins away - better night life, not as rough etc), or dossing at mine (but 12 divers may upset the other half a bit).

The cost for a day is £350 for the whole boat- expensive but worth it in my mind.  I dunno, anyone up for it?  I would want at least 10 to make this work.

A change from the normal Farnes, Oslofjord and St abbs in the north east??

Bloody hell, there's no stopping you now! Just the thought of getting a car and off you go organising dive trips.

I'm up for it Porg, all I need is the dates well in advance so I can make the work arrangements and make sure it doesn't clash with any of my other dive dates or holidays.

See you next week in Malta.

<font color='#000080'>It's Jos, posting as usual under Dave's name as can't be ar***ed logging off and then logging on as me.

We would be interested, but the depth is the issue/problem with us. At the moment max 20m, but deeper from May when (hopefully) Sports Diver is signed up.

So either shallow or later in the year and we'd be interested, and as you know we can give you a lift if you need one.

Looks like the perks of this job are better than the last one, although life times supply of vet lube.......

<font color='#000F22'>As long as the wrecks are worth doing I can usually scare up a requisite number.

40m plus then I'd say me, Harris plus two.

Less deep than that then more.

If the weather's shite tho' I'm not prepared to dive in soup for the hell of it as I'm sure you can understand.

Porg,

I'm tempted, depends on what you are planning, it's a long run up there for me.

What you got in mind, i.e. depths type of wrecks (size) etc.

Also depends on when, but it is about time I ventured North again.

<font color='#000080'>I dunno.  We have found a wreck that was named as "Princess Maude" by my club but is probably the Queen Willemeena (spelling i have NO idea with that one).  Portholes were recovered from her.........  she is only in about 20m, the Bulger has allegedly got a full set of hard hat divers gear in the bow section but its hard to get to.....she is in 12m
