Scavenger Coding Inspection…

Over the last few weeks we’ve been working flat out on Scavenger, upgrading lots of stuff and making the boat slicker.

Diving West Wales

We’ve just finished four days of great diving off Scavenger in Milford Haven. The weather has been interesting and certainly not the best, but we’ve made the most of it and everyone on board has enjoyed themselves and achieved what they wanted from the trip. Yesterday we headed out to the Highland Home wreck whichContinue reading “Diving West Wales”

Diving in the Skomer Marine Conservation Zone

Today started off looking pants! The forecast was force 4, the swell was upto 3mtrs around St Ann’s Head, but not breaking, so we thought we’d give it a look.

A quick catch up with the team at LGS in Neyland saw a new Cat C first Aid kit acquired for the boat along with some discussion about a new Liferaft cradle. That done and I headed to the marina to pick up aContinue reading “Scavenger Dive Boat Maintenance”
