    Yeah, there is that option. Divers are encouraged to use the central ramp, and there is a sign to that effect, so that end place can be used by swimmers. I have promised myself that one day I will trolley the scooter and CCR to those step and go in search of the Royal Adelaide

    Yeah, that is my preference too. Sadly, there hasn't been a lot of that going on this year

    I would not travel for hours to dive Chesil but it so near and is a definite upgrade on not diving. There's even the occasionally bonus of a plaice, or worthy crustacean, to be rescued. Last time the only thing I rescued was two sets of fishing weights with an attached bundle of line, fish head with embedded hook, and a Suunto Solution depth timer. Thankfully, I spotted a diver executing a search pattern and was able to return his piece of history.

    When we dived in New England in a location where they had similar pebble beaches, they were using things like sledges to pull their gear across. They were also buoyant sio could be used as an SMB if desired.

    Are you placating the weather gods? They don't do things for nothing, you know.
    I suggest anointing some flesh with sacred herbs, lighting a ritual fire and pouring out a generous libation of holy spirit. All the while, chanting the powerful phrase "Barbed queue, barbed queue."
    Paul.

    I think they cancelled that for this year, luckily also the morris festival.
