A good day out in the company of Doc Tom Charlesworth Sonic and Geoff plus two of his mates, not forgetting Sam (the dog). Air temperature was a lot warmer than last week although water temp was the same. Max depth achieved by me 20.4m. Sorry no photos - decided to do a couple of dives without the camera for a change. No doubt there will be pictures from others. Thanks for the dives.

20.4 has got to be a fix. i dug for ages and only managed 20.1

was a great day at eccy even though a few of the regulars couldnt make it. smudge and andy w of all people were absent from todays dive. wasnt it andy who officially christened sunday as diveday???

both dives were fairly long ones considering the temperature of 4-5 degrees in the water, dive one was 45 mins and dive two was 40. both dives was just a general mooch around the quarry playing and discovering. one thing of paticular interest to me was a top case from a 30mm radon canon, a type of weapon system used on the warrior afv. if i knew how to put pics on here i would show you one.

on a personal note i was trialing a set of twin 7s today on loan to me from doc for the day. LOVED THEM . looks like a hefty period of saving for old sonic

I have no words to describe my feelings today so I will use emoticons to portray my emotions.





And on my 1 year anniversary of qualifying - 141 dives in one year without an overseas trip, so I have my target for this year now.


Glad you all had a good day and are all safe and sound. We missed you all too.

ECCY WITHOUT SMUDGE AND ANDY!

Just 8 turned out to a windy but warmer Eccy Delph today.
Nice to see 2 new divers out with us today, friends of Geoff's.

So buddied in pairs, but in 2 groups of 4 we set off on dive one. We all headed out to the Perfect 10 to get a deep reading, Ian G beating everyone with an impressive 20.4m at the front of the boat.

After this Ian's group went their own way, Tom and Charlie had to finish due to cold hands so after we saw them out Sonic and I had a little tour round, 46 minutes total time on dive 1.

So after the initial deep stride entry, van, APC, perfect 10, plane, Sonic and I went along the back wall to the telegraph pole with the telephone, and a messy gnome garden. Then we went across to the 2 containers, on to the cockpit and through the deep tunnel under the platform, finally out via the tunnel exit wher Sonic was surprised by a huge trout in the shallows.
A great dive, think Sonic liked it


Dive 2 was a relaxed dive with Ian, Gaoff, Sonic and Charlie.
Starting off at the shallow slipway entry point we dropped down to the 3m platform then headed straight over to the gnome garden/pole. From here we stayed by the far wall until we reached the playground, a short play there for the 2 kids, then over to the containers. Ian managed to loosen a fin but did not lose it, once that was back on we finished in a similar route as my Dive 1 via cockpit and tunnels. Geoff a little taken aback that this was an exit!

Photos are mixed from both dives:





















There will be a few more photos to follow....Sonic explaining the finer details of a gun part

ill have a go lol

basically this is a top case to a 30mm gun than we have on the warrior afv. this top casr houses the mechanism that positions the round for firing and also the actual firing mechanism. its all quite complicated so the next time we are all at eccy we can have a lesson on gunnery with proffesor sonic Sleep Sleep
