Its always been the aim of the club to provide a broad range of snorkeling and diving opportunities for the members. In 2010 to help with this goal we decided to purchase a second diving boat, to compliment the diving available from Gemini. We didn’t have a lot of money to spend so a new RIB as usually used by BSAC clubs was pretty much out of the question.
In 2010 we bought a new dive boat. A 17ft dory style hull with 60HP engine.
By midsummer she’d been used on 4 expeditions and we’d done over 120 dives from her. Capable of taking 6 divers with kit, with a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 20nm she’s proving to be an excellent addition to our dive platforms and has already opened up new dive sites for us.
