Right then, coz i ate too many pies i am going to have to get a new drysuit. This means i will be selling my bone dry beloved Otter Britannic.
I will describe the suit and you tell me what i should get on e-bay.

The suit was made to measure for me in 2000 at the dive show. It is an all black Britannic.

Features are
Heavy duty cross body zip ( replaced by Otter in 2005 )
Neoprene neck seal ( replaced by local dive shop 2006 )
Heavy duty latex wrist seals ( replaced by Otter 2005 )
Two front of thigh zip pockets ( done at time of suit build by Otter )
HD welly style boots

This suit is bone dry and apart from some rust stains from kneeling on wrecks there is not a mark on it.

If you want an idea of my build, look at Diver Magazine web site for drysuit tests and thats me in an Otter skin, amongst others we tested. I also did the 50M reg test last year, so you can read about me and decide if i am an honest John or not!!!!!!!

But to give you an idea. I am 6'01" tall. 33 inch inside leg. Size 10 boot. 44-46 inch chest, 36-38 waist.
The suit is obviously bang on size for me but bit restrictive coz of my waist being 38 inch. When i bought it i was probably 34-36.
If you are thinking why sell it, well its tight on me and i have my next suit lined up ( should be along soon).

So go on what do you think i should ask on fleabay.
PS Look on Deep Image at the shots of the Laurentic, and thats me in the Britannic suit. Therefore this suit is famous!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sensible comments only please.

I'd have hoped for £250ish. Maybe bang it on Ebay with a low starting price and a £200 reserve, and see what happens,

My bit of advise is to go out and do some exercise then you will be able to get in to your beloved suit,

then leave all the pies alone :D
