This weekend in Tobermory Canada...

Our season is wrapping up here sadly. Saturday was blowing a full gale again. By Sunday the wind had died somewhat and the swells were down to about 1.5 - 2m but pretty confused. We took a run out around Flowerpot Island and through the National Park here. The air temp was about 1C and the water is down to about 6C...

The orange RIB is the CCG 733 Hurricane stationed here. (There is also a 47' MLB). Everything else has been pulled out with a very few exceptions.

Incidently, the round, yellow object is my Significant Other. In her defense, she was wearing a T-shirt, sweater, down vest, Goretex jacket, Floater suit, hat, two hoods, mitts, two pairs of pants and double socks. She actually weighs 98# and was insistent that if I was going to post this pic, I explain that most of her... well, isn't her!

LOL.. I don't Biggles! I carry an extra 50 litres on the frame to extend my range.The internal tank is 132 litres which leaves me a little wanting on some dive expeditions. I don't use them often, but it's nice to know they are there. You will notice one of the tanks on the deck. I was running those tanks down so they were empty for winter storage, which is getting close I'm afraid...

Will do Codders... They won't be boating pics though! The harbour likely won't be ice until early January, but the snow plows tend to use the ramp ("slipway"?) to dispose of their loads. As much as I like using the boat, I'm not prepared to dig through an 8' high pile of snow to launch!

She is that Pat. I have never understood what she's doing with me... I drag the poor girl out in all sorts of crap... rain, snow, squalls... to tend boat while I dive, and she rarely protests. (In return, I took up golf. )

And what's more impressive, I neglected to lace the hot chocolate with Irish Creme last weekend too! (She didn't figure that out until we were 3 miles offshore mind you...)

Mines the same re clothes, (looks like paddington bear in a survival suite) to keep the smiles coming, I bought her a heated jacket, collar and gloves http://www.exo2.co.uk/contact.html and had the manufacturer of the rib fit a buchaneer socket on the consol...she won't go anywhere unless she's plugged in now.

LOL.. Now that would seem to open up all sorts of new options for her to pass the time while on the water! Do you have her grounded somehow? I would hate to see her spontaneously combust if she was dunked in salt water!

I once made my own heated inserts out of resistance tape used for stopping pipes bursting - worked great until it chaffed through and shorted.....
