    HI
    And wecome to Perth, CCR is going thruogh a bad time here at the mo, there are plenty of ccr units around but most must be in the garage.
    I have a sport and dive a lot with PDA.

    I wil be on the boat a week on Sat I think to test out the new shearwater but I will try and email you if you would like to go.

    Cheers David

    Yeah sounds good but I think I need to do a shore dive first as a check dive first, as it's not been wet since the move. Plus I have never dived in a wet suit with it before. So I think a bouyancy check is needed. So if your up for a shore dive would be greatly welcome

    A friend is also soon getting back into diving so may be do it all together. But the water is getting a little cool at the mo :)
    The wreck trail at Rockingham is always good for this sort of thing, If I can make it may be do it next week, will have to see what the weather is like.

    What unit do you have !

    Welcome to Perth

    Just got back from a days diving in Collie, Wellington dam was sensational, we found a wonderful new section to dive but a chilly 12c but stunning vis.

    If you you are diving the coal mine ie Lake Stockton I would really suggest staying in the open pit and not going underground, unless you have a death wish or have many hundreds of hours cave diving experience

    The underground mine is pretty much a death trap, absolute zero visibility if you touch anything on the way in and guaranteed 0 vis on the way out, plenty of old line hanging in there and really nasty line traps, the horizontal cross members holding up the roof have a tendency to collapse. It is really not a nice place to visit.
