    Default Looking at your bottom

    Just came across this (from a photography website)

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...paign=109b1842

    Struck me it would be dead useful to have aboard for recreation and for looking at the underside of the hull - perhaps just an excuse to buy a new toy??

    Have you misplaced your mask & snorkel?

    Also like the look of this https://www.airbuddy.net/ (lightweight tankless diving kit). Think I might wait a year or so to see if anyone drowns first though.

    On my ship we use a Reach and Rescue pole with mounted camera. All the electronics fit in a peli, itís quickly set up and works a treat. Itís saved us having divers down on several occasions.

    Re Stingo's comment re a mask and snorkel, add in a few more $$'s for a good wetsuit and it will be an excellent investment in the long run.
    It is also very worthwhile doing a dive course - I did a BSAC course one winter at Andark Diving in Bursledon (near Southampton) and it was excellent. There must be similar outfits in Essex?

    No - mask and snorkel all accounted for and aboard as normal - but I did like the idea of having a look without getting into sh**ty marina water!

    Similarly - I like the look of the diving gear - another way to skin the cat!

    We clean the bottom of our hull with a hookah. Built using an aquarium compressor, 100ft of hose and a low pressure regulator. Lot easier than putting on all our diving gear to just clean the hull

    Mask and snorkel is better. You get a free wash in the process.
