if the weather gets that bad I'm gonna be in a bar in Lerwick

The FPSO is an interesting thing to dive on as on average they fill up in a week. Some in 36 hours. As they are filling up they become heavier and the boat gets lower in the water. So the divers are diving deeper About (10 metres)and then have to be changed out more often likewise the Nitrox

Wow

I like the description of it 'cuddled up' to the big boat !

The thing at the bottom of the LH rack in the first 'techie' pic looks like a Betacam recorder, is it ? Seems like an odd place to find one but I suppose it's a good way of keeping a record of dives.
