Thanks for the link, without knowing the backgorund on this (as we do) it looked almost inoccuous. Wonder if they've had similar scrapes with other locations.

Thanks for posting that but - Is that it??? I would have expected better of a pro crew - obviously too busy saving their own skins.

Wasn't that much water on board but I suppose with the engines both out you were buggered.

Your tale reminds me of a situation I was involved with years ago. I was contracted to be a safety diver for a crew filming a documentry about disabled folks learning to dive. Most of the filming was done in Grand Cayman, but the initial open-water training was in Tobermory... where even the shallows are cold all year.

One of the disabled "divers" was a parapalegic, with no feeling or movement below mid chest. At the point where I felt he was very cold and indeed becoming hypothermic, I insisted that the crew wrap for the day. The Director felt otherwise. Our argument got pretty nasty, until the Capain of our dive vessel (and a friend of mine) fired up the engine and said we were heading in.

This Director paid good money for my services as a professional diver, and yet chose to ignore my advise when it came to the very thing he was hiring me for!

When all was said and done, it was an interesting film and won a number of awards.... It even had a little footage of my old RIB whizzing around!
