    I'm only interested in one dive - is the boat coming in between the dives or staying out?

    The way the tides are running that day I don`t think the first one will be to early anyway the 2nd dive is quite late in the day. Will double check all this though.
    Need more of us first before I make any more enquires.

    Betsy Ann sounds like a good plan for Sunday.

    Ok by me.

    I was thinking of having the Monday off work anyway, so that'd decide it for me. Best part of 5 hours to get home, so it'll be a late one.

    Thanks for all your efforts, jps. It's much appreciated. It's looking like a cracking weekend.

    Hi Guys - I've just requested to cancel the dives on Saturday, hadn't booked anything for Sunday. I don't have time to practice enough in the drysuit - from now to mid-June will be Barbados, closely followed by a finger operation. The operation is minor, just straightening up a finger, but will take at least eight weeks to get full grip back (always assuming the wound doesn't get infected :hungover:). The accommodation is booked, so management and I will be there - if anyone wants a bimble around the pier, I'll have my gear and would be happy to join them.
    Once I'm back in one piece, I'll look for less challenging dives and get some of the UK skills sorted. I feel North Norfolk calling.

    Will be nice to meet up anyway @JohnL. Diving under the pier is nice. Similarly there's occasionally spaces on the Shuttles for some dives if you're feeling up to it on the day. Some lovely shallower dives.

    You should look into fitting Kubi drygloves to your suit. Keeps the crap off of your hands; might be good after the operation.
