We have a 3 day weekend ( Public Holiday) and according to the latest satelite forcast. The weather coulnt be better..
We plan on 3 dives per day for 3 days...Im so excited..All packed and Waiting...Waiting...Waiting..
I have a heap of film and a cheap disposible underwater Camera to have a play with so hopefully I will have an interesting Dive brief for everyone ( As long as spelling isnt high on the list ) hmm maybe the moderaters could install spell check..
So safe diving all that are this weekend..

Yeah, but you're 'Gunna' have to go metric dude, all this talk of 'feet' is just too confusing for us Europeans ;)

Well its 11.30pm and im still waiting..Excitement has worn off and im going for a kip for an hour...
And as for metric. I thought the EC was still in imperial
or it seems all the Europeon cars I have to work on are.
So when I come back my nice comp will have done a conversion for me and Ill post in Metric...loll
But dont forget 5 inches sounds better than 125mm..

I had an Amaerican pal who had great trouble with the whole Bar/PSI difference when using hired club kit, he used to have momentary "heart attacks" looking at a contents guage which said 50 bar! Bit silly seing as the danger area is always in red no matter what the units

1 bar EQUALS 14.5038 psi

So for 50bar (drum roll please) you get 725psi (usually called at 800psi)

A full 232bar is 3365psi - hence the reason my American (Oceanic) yoke has 3300psi stamped on it in BIG numbers...
