Yep and me... knew of it but hadn't seen the video... watched it all through with great fascination... many thanks for the link. It would have made good watching for the guy Chris (I think) who tried it solo with an Frib not to long back and had to give up early on due to back fatigue.

It would have to be a miracle good weather period to make it in a Frib or SIB.

testimony to the build quality of that Gemini Rib, that
18 years and one re-tube later it still looks tidy. It had a 150 VRO bolted onto it
when I first acquired it.

I watched it too, very good, no auxiliaries there either. As for getting caught in a lobster pot rope do the self sufficient brigade carry diving gear?
