Er, fuel vapour is heavier than air so you need to vent at low level to let fuel vapour out.

Yes - thats why there is a vent at the bottom of the console & its amazing how quickly you can change the volume of air with a rear hinged seat at 10knts + !

Thanks Blackroady for that much appreciated! Thats a tidy job, I take it by the "BIG" service agent you mean BHG? They do a nice job I know from my previous boat. Gives me some confidence it can be done will just fit a vent in the console.

May well be out of mudeford at the weekend diving on a mates boat will keep an eye out for you if your about!

Thanks again

No prob - yep BHG - even after a few years I'm still impressed by the way its rigged.

I'm planning to be out on other boat - Shearwater - afternoon tomorrow & around , in and out all day Sunday .

Safe diving !

Diving off ' Vixen' ? Saw a few divers surface on Sunday so hung around to make sure they didn't get runover - you see a lot of boats run very close to marks on the assumption they are lobster pot marks !

In Start Bay during the summer we normally dive with two boats, one anchored, and one pick up boat.
I act as pick up boat normally, and quite often have to physically put myself between the divers and an oncoming boat, despite flying an A Flag, much to their annoyance. The Gin palaces are the worst, the drivers get quite upset that they've had to detour around me, all I can do is point to the A flag and comment about ther Mothers.

No I didnt get out in the end, family commitments told me other wise (the wife is watching!). Its a nightmare with boats coming so close, as nasher says you have to physically create a barrier to protect your man down! And im sure half of the wekend boaters dont even know what the flag means!

Am hoping to be out this weekend tho, fingers crossed!
