Off Gassing / Hoegh Osaka run aground deliberately
« on: January 05, 2015, 09:29:46 AM »


It seems the car transporter was run aground deliberately to stop it capsizing after it started listing.

This is the Daily Mail link, there's some good pictures here.

It's about time somebody did this. Looks like it's all top end stuff too. Good luck to them.  :)

Time for the medical / PFO closure not on NHS anymore.
« on: December 22, 2014, 10:04:02 AM »
I heard the other day that the NHS has decided, after much toing, froing, dithering and generally fucking about, that it is no longer going to pay for PFO closure in divers! All divers are being tarred with the recreational brush and it is considered a lifestyle choice and therefore not a necessary procedure. Wankers! If you've had a stroke then they will treat you but not a dci.
Incidentally it costs about £15000 to get it done privately!

Time for the medical / Newbies...
« on: December 12, 2014, 10:50:02 AM »
If you've not had a divers medical before be aware there is NO PROSTATE EXAMINATION involved so if your Dr has his finger(s) up your bum it's probably time to get a new Dr!!!  :(

This made me laugh. I trialled one of these years ago and the bloody thing kept electrocuting me! I hope they've sorted that out now and are not just frying baby divers.
