    Crusader and the hebron, Kilkeel

    Drop off the boat look down brilliant viz, shouts to Speedy we have viz, Speedy says it will be 2 per mtr extra for the viz.
    So I sets off down the shot, usual equalising problems.
    Gets to 25mts the lights go out, ho dear we are back in Killkeel not Malin, gets down to 40 mts the viz is 1 meter if you are lucky, swims around the side of the wreck looking for the prop all I can see is bits of nets, after 15mins Jane calls it, smart girl, blob off bit of deco, gas switch everything went well.

    Good craic on the boat as usual with the lads, waited 45mins for Big Dave and Andy to appear, Dave did the full planned bottom time of 30 mins the mug lol

    So on the way back we had a dip on the Hebron well at 30mts it couldn't be that bad and it didn't disappoint, a nice 7mts ish tad snotty but grand.
    I thought I was diving solo, but seemed to have a guardian angle call Hugh on the revo following me about, maybe he was just looking at my excellent trim
    So a good day had by all, nice to see Sammy hit the Crusader and the Hebron.
    So thanks again Killkeel BSAC
    See you all again next week with a bit of luck.

    Hope Morgan can get hold of the photos and post them, not oftern you get to tow the local RNLI cox to shore

    Good craic had by the sounds of it.

    I was kayaking yesterday and was SICK that I wasnt diving, could see the bottom 10m below me from the surface so would have been fantastic if I had the gear to get in
    Rememeber anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    It was good craic as always Ken. Did you not hear speedy being subtle
    on the VHF so he could keep it secret ?
    I reckon Kilkeel is only half like Malin, the top half
    Couldn't believe how it changed, I was as happy as Larry going down the
    shot, thinking another day of fantastic viz, then at 25m it was a blanket of shit.
    I knew yous had went down first but I didn't think you could kick it up that bad

    No he didn't call it in just when he called yous and said
    to take a run over when yous had the divers in.
    He knew the lads in the lifeboat house would of been
    listening and then the stick would of started

    I didn't get on the Hebron because I made a schoolboy mistake
    after the Crusader
    I haven't got hold of any photos yet, are you hoping you'r in them ?
