<font color='#0000FF'>dear YD Diving Officer,

Today i had a lovely dive under my boat in Dover marina, wanting to check the bilges .

However , only in a dry suit and sucking though a long bit of hose,   i hit my face on the propeller trying to get under the water, i was floating a bit and had lots of trouble getting under,, this resulted in putting a hole in my goggley thing that divers put over thier eyes and it's now got a little hole in the plastic bit ,, can i use expoxy resin to fill this hole
?  it is a good goggley thing as bought from woolworths for a whole £ 4.99  plus i got one of them breathey tube things , but that wasn't long enough .

Andy

by the way ,,, i did invoice myself for £ 440 +VAT like real working divers do , is this OK ?

<font color='#000080'>What the flip!!!

We'll I've seen it all now!! A floating waterproofed compressor. They'll be compressing air into metal containers and strapping them to our backs with tubes to the mouths next!?!?!

 
 
 


Andy,

440 squid per hour!! I'm in the wrong job. And I thought plumbers were paid well at 60k per year.!!!!

If you cannot fix it with superglue or gaffer tape then bin it, its not worth the effort.

Good invoicing - for tax reasons i hope

I've got a bit of a hankering for one of these:

Hi
Andy

Seadart use a couple of these units
For there excavation work on the Halsewell site.  
 

They are ideal for shallow work you can stay down for hours.
If you need any info on them give us a shout we have tried and tested them.

Seadart Equipment Page

Don’t take any notice of the price tags they are well out of date.

Cheers
Bob
