    Thanks for the feedback so far.

    I nearly joined Durham Divers before I lost my own NE connections. They do a fair bit of Farnes area stuff, and often base a RIB up there. Maybe check them out on FB.

    You'll find it's 9 to 10 bar.

    What I've never found myself is whether there's a recommended exact target value. Does anyone have a good reason not to go for 9.5?
