My aqua life kicked off with sinking
Something over thirty years ago I was heading out to dive sites in one of two SIBs with Southsea Dive Club. The club itself had quite an illustrious history, being the place where Octopush was first devised, and being the home 'club' of one Alexander McKee, the true discoverer of the Mary Rose.
I got so used to the handling of SIBs that it came as quite a shock when I found that I did not have to take it so easy over somewhat rougher stuff when I started going to dive sites in RIBs - what luxury
Gradually I got more and more interested in the boats that are an essential part of diving, and got hooked.
Haven't dived now for a couple of years; but my kit in the garage keeps shouting at me
