Same as me, sold my kit apart from my regs, i think, too cold and crap viz over here

Ello,
Quite appropriate, but I am just back from a long weekend taking divers out... Not sure if people are interested, but I could organise a weekend with some diving up in Loch Fyne, I could organise try dives for those that want to try and they take some of you out on the boat to do some great diving, I've been talking to YC about this anyway. Those that don't dive/want to can go and play on the bikes round Glencoe (just up the road) or rest and be thankful... I'm a BSAC and IANTD instructor, so if any of you need/want advice, either drop me a PM or give me a ring and I will see what I can do to help.

No chance of getting out in the sea this weekend but will hopefully get the last 2 qualifying dives done next weekend

Then just how to figure out how to get 2 kit bags and a 12l 232bar air cylinder to attach to the back of the XJ

Now you know why I drive a Mondeo Estate. Room for three divers and their kit.

Got kit except for BCD and one of those pesky stamps on the cylinder, still looking on ebay


Currently reading "Shadow Divers" by Rober Kurson, bloody excellent! (Love you Maria!!)
