    Damned if I can remember his surname. Yes it was Excalibur and not the best boat that I 've dived from.

    It was displacement hull, with a small ~30hp engine plodding away.
    We were heading back, when Fury(?) screamed past at 20+knots throwing up a huge rooster tail; the skipper said "We`ve dived the same sites as them today, and used less fuel".
    My thought at the time was, "they set out over an hour after us, and are getting back at least an hour before us"; like I said, it was really slow, strangely nobody fancied rebooking it.
    Even Perigrine (??) on the Mull when they were using the onboard engine driven compressor, which halved the headway to 5~7knots was quicker than excalibur.

    That's the one!

    We didn't use him very often for reasons above. I think he was one of the first hard boats I dived off so didn't really know much better

    A swift kick to the knackers would be either justified, or animal cruelty.
