A few people have dived on Smudgers boat and mentioned how well setup it is for divers so PLM took these and i thought they would show you the setup




rear with lift and loading side entrance



Front with bunks at the front Dry area the cabin is a wet area



theres also hot and cold hoses on board the hot is fresh water so you can clean your kit off after the dive, theres also a 80% drop tank large toilet (electric) and tea and coffee on tap with pasties for lunch :)

i think he doesn't do it justice so i thought I'd mention it, and he doesn't answer the phone and leave you waiting on the lift :wink:

I've not dived off it yet, but think i need to sort that out :)

Always good when the Skipper pays attention to what the divers are doing ;)

This is a top boat, plenty of room and skippers not bad either ;-)

Well worth the trek down to Weymouth.

This boat is possibly the worst boat that I have ever been on, I wouldn't pee on the skipper if he was on fire :angry:

P.S. If that hasn't put you off, when booking please be kind enough to leave at least one place for me :) Honestly though awesome boat, great crew :teeth:

One of my friends said of Scimitar: "It's got the nicest toilet of any boat I've every been on"

So there you have it. If you want a good head, dive from Scimitar...

Bungy clips

If I remember I will post a pc of the bungy solution for holding kit in place. Simple and stunningly effective. Even I could use it correctly, at the second attempt of course.

So good I bought a few from him :D just to echo the above comments we had a top experience on our 3 days in Easter diving from Scimitar.

Safe diving,
Steve

Just to be clear, that's "A good head". Not "good head". Which is also good, but an extra service incurring additional charges, depending on whether you like it with or without bungees. :angel:

Couldn't agree more. Been on Scimitar a few times - great boat and great crew. And the head is fantastic! Plenty of room for the girls to keep our wooly bears and drysuits out of the boys' p**s, without having to be a contortionist :D !!!

One has to keep neat and tidy - all that stripping off in front of the boys ;)

I'm sure if you asked nicely Smudge would let you use it too :D

I totally agree. The big strength of Smudges boat is how much effort he has put into thinking things through to make life as easy as possible for the divers.

I wrote a piece about a winter dive here if you are interested in a more detailed read about the boat.
