Hi Zippy
Yes - that was probably us. We use a Toyota Landcruiser (3.0 Diesel) - seems to tow really well - but our 1st go at trailer/slip launching the 8.6m Shearwater will be this week in Pembroke. Hopefully it will be as easy as the towing is!

Anyone dive on here?
Now you come to mention it - I've just gone and looked at my GPS track and we lost the camera at 50 degrees 35.379 North, between 1 degree 58.404 and 1 Degree 58.376 West. (I don't know how to put a degree sign in the reply!)

From my charts I think it is about 7m depth there. Maybe a bit less.

Any divers fancy a challenge?

Guess what will be 1st on my "to buy" list when I get the replacement camera!

Question though.... When the Wi-fi/remote module comes out in a few weeks time, will you be able to fit the wi-fi module, extra power pack and the floaty back door to the camera and if you can, will it still fit on the mounts without having so much mass being vibrated about that it will keep slipping on it's fittings?
