    Not robust enough for heavy use, but for a small club and occasional use (and very portable) this inflatable dummy would go well with the £35 AED: https://giftshop.bhf.org.uk/cpr-training-kit

    £35 for a mini AED trainer is a pretty good deal. I notice it's £95 for non members. My club doesn't own one, and we don't have our own mannequin either but we can normally get access to them...

    Yup. Lanzarote for angel sharks (and seahorses). Tenerife for turtles. Plenty of rays around both.
  6. CCR choose / buy / train or a different sequence

    Hi all.

    The most basic of basic questions. I'm finally thinking of making the change to CCR. There are obviously lots of different types (too many to realistically try dive then all) and different...

    I know this sort of request sporadically comes up - but I haven't seen one for the past few years. Does anyone by any miracle have a copy of the shipwreck index of the british isles...

    There is plenty here to put me off... but I think Iím in the denial phase - it will be different for me!!! (Of course it wonít).

    That is super helpful... so a 4m boat and we're looking promising. (My wife will hate it of course...)

    Do you remember how big it was?

    A few more examples of the kinds of thing we *might* use it for (if we can find the slips to launch) - head to the Countess of Erne behond the Portland breakwater,...

    The challenge is deciding on the size of boat. Small ones are no good for diving but when you get up to 4m they become a lot less portable. Still,...
  17. Anyone still dive from inflatables / zodiacs?

    Iíve been thinking about boats for a while. My club sold its RHIB a while back as it was not used enough, expensive and not enough people could tow it. But as a result we donít do enough sea diving...

    I had one of those little Nikon coolpix pool jobbies (rated to 10m) for a while. I took it to 30m a few times before it packed up - it didn't flood but moisture seeped in and it started fogging then...

    My first underwater camera was basically a disposable point-and-click film camera 'rated' to 5m (though I took it to 10m a few times). I say it was disposable, but it actually opened up, had an...

    I've been reading that a lot of the charter boats are really struggling and can't get access to government support (though the details of why weren't quite clear). We have to hope that there are...
