It's been a while since my last post. I've been cracking on with my SCUBA diving. I'm now a qualified BSAC Ocean Diver and am almost at the next stage of being a BSAC Sports Diver. I've also been diving shipwrecks in Devon and Cornwall. My next exciting dives will be on holiday in Lanzarote ... ahh, warm clear blue waters, heaven!

First Training Dives Done

Had a trip out to Dosthill Quarry near to Tamworth. Completed my first two training dives on a lovely sunny late winters day. Visability was about 8 meters ... and we saw two of the infamous Pike!

Next up are another two training dive at Stoney Cove.

I'm ready for the Open Water

I'm enjoying my Scuba diving, I have to, it's cost me enough. I have completed all my pool training, classroom lessons and theory test. I have had several drysuit training sessions and I am now ready to hit the open water. A trip to Dosthill quarry is planned for the 6th March. Hopefully I'll soon be a BSAC qualified Ocean Diver.

I think I may take up SCUBA Diving

... or is it Sub-Aqua? ... I can't quite work out the correct term yet.
 
Anyhow, I have arranged a free 'Try Dive' session with a local Dive Club ... and I'll see how it goes.

New aircon compressor fitted ... tow-bar electrics fixed ... new battery fitted.

14 SEP 2009: Broken Jag !?

Lots of rattling from under the bonnet ... then some smoke!
Taken it back to garage I had it from as there is a bit of waranty with it.
(It could be the Aircon Compressor clutch packed up?)
