You are quite correct, my dear socko. (you definitely are Keith Hart). I've just been looking at a website about the wrecks in Scapa complete with pics. Should be paradise for the divers on the SIB expedition. Apparently there are seven major German ships still down there the rest being salvaged by an enterprising Black country firm, Cox and Danks. The ships were scuttled by having their seacocks hammered off. These were filled with concrete by the salvors to enable recovery. The remaining ships were too badly damaged to be raised. Just punch in scapaflow and loads of sites come up.

I'm taking my kit up if there's room in David's for it and if it's alright by him. A few other people are considering taking dive kit up. I'll be at minimum a BSAC Sport Diver by then, if possible higher. Some diving up their would be good practice, as shortly after I'll be starting my navy diver training.

I think you should all take dive gear as it always rains up there.
Sitting in a little SIB with the water spilling over the tubes
GREAT FUN

Shall we plan some dives then??

It seems that some want to dive. I believe that the water will be clear (but cold) in August. However, diving in Scotland is a MUST!! I am a BSAC Open Water diver, is there any one who has a higher qualification than that so a SAFE dive can be arranged??

I'm currently doing Ocean Diver (what was Club Diver, equivalent of PADI open water) but have been diving for over a year. Reason qualifications aren't sorted is our club isn't exactly quick at getting training sorted. But I am making sure that I get as much training done as possible.

Yep, it'll be cold, but then the water is rarely warm for us

Yup, that why I'm getting a full drysuit!

Okay Matt, so what exactly is 'freediving'?

Manos, Diana and I are taking gear up with us. I have contacted a dive company that operates up there so as to put some wreck diving in. Safer and more interesting with local knowledge.

The company has a web site at...

www.jeanelaine.co.uk

I called them and they are going to send me details of their 2003 programme by post.

Cheers
