Me Etec be a might finicky

Engine problems with the Vicious Guppy brought a full contingent of professionals to Sea Rovers. First we complain to the dealer, then the dealer to the distributor, then the distributor to the regional offices. Then with enough complaints everybody comes to visit and help sort out the problem.

She may be a might poorly but she'll survive to run many more dive trips to come. And though she be fibreglass, she has the mighty oaken heart of pirate ships of yore. Garr! Shiver me fibre!

Pic of the Morning

Woke up and started the day with a dive and a photo.

A couple of very accommodating Ornate Ghost Pipefish under the jetty in "Mucky Pirates Bay"

Not a bad way to start your day.

What can we do with snow and Photoshop

Couple of new pics of yours truly and German lake diving in the snow. Sent by another of our Piratical Brethren, Peter Bronold.

Christmas lake diving in Germany
German style, Brrr.... looks cold to me, think I'll stick to Bali Diving

Thanks for the photo's Peter. Looking forward to seeing the rest, but remember 800x600 72px is the best for emailing to me.

Ciao
