Default Any qualified scuba divers out there?

Hi all,

I qualify as an open water diver in October and was wondering if anyone else on here is as well, and would maybe like a buddy?

My nephew is an "Advanced diver" and rescue diver whatever that is. I know it means he knocks on my door with big crustaceans for the pot. yum yum, enjoy the foraging.

I will have my PADI open water as of Saturday hopefully. Although how that relates to qualified and/or competent I'm not convinced

I started my BSAC many many many years ago. My Dad was a Class1 instrutor. I could never get used to being able to breathe underwater so gave up.

fraid not in my case, apart from the knee thing; I mainly done wreak and cave diving around these shores that ment dry suit stuff, heavy old kit to lug about, all a bit energetic and demanding, bit to old for that kind of thing now.

Cheers Mark.
