    I live by the mantra that an old, experienced, colleague of mine taught me - 'under promise and over deliver'. I thought I'd set a nice low threshold and then everything would be an improvement! A converted fishing trawler (most of the Scapa boats are) in Scapa with 10 diving friends seemed like a good way to do that.....

    So far, so good.

    Cheers,

    I know I know, that's why I totally agree with you: never espect more that what is strictly necessary! All the rest, eventually, will be a gift.

    Hi Chaps

    I can recommend Scapa Flow Charters

    They have a great set up and are very flexable, and the Breakfasts are awesome

    Is this the wreck with the heavy oil under the deck head on the bridge?

    Was greeted after diving this with a bucket of detergent as I came up the ladder... definitely NOT O2 clean after that dive

    Don't you mean the James Barrie? Usually get told during the dive brief to avoid the bridge due to the oil inside the it.

    Other than that, its a cracking dive:) In amongst all the warships, a trawler sunk in 1969 is one of the best dives in the Orkneys IMO

    Dive safe,

    I'll be taking about 80Kg of Sorb up with me but I'm pretty sure Scapa Scuba will sell it.

    Whys that? You smoking it?
