I was on board Emily's boat in September last year, please see the trip report. So I am back again, well you have to make the most of the dive opportunities available...
So to add to last years report, the house is a delight to stay in. Very modern, extremely clean, Emily is very very specific on this point. Lots of charging points, two fridges, a freezer, washing machine and tumble drier, dishwasher. Note that you must have indoor footwear or slippers, that or potentially cold feet.
Stromness is fairly quiet at the moment, but you still need to book if you want to eat at the Ferry Inn, book well in advance please note.
The Chinese takeaway is closed on Mondays.
Ben (Emily's partner in crime) operates the suit repair service at Scapa Scuba. I had to make use of this service due a leak in my crotch, as I had a distinct lack of time between dive trips. The over-night service is excellent and my suit is dry for the first time in quite a long time.
We have some Scapa virgins on the boat this week. They are a bit stunned at the quality of the UK diving. At 10m viz I have seen better, however due to the amount of metalwork available look at the dives remain very interesting. I may post videos later in the week.
