At long last we got the boats out again today with 3 full boats diving the Pinnacle and George Kermode out of Newhaven, Phillip Island.
Really shocked at how much the George Kermode has deteriorated.
We even found time to hop further down the coast and check out the wreck of the Speke.
Hopefully boating season is on again now.
Continuing the clubs focus on Safety we have now taken delivery of three more Oxygen kits. These will be located on Peter Galvin’s, John Ashley’s and Grant Callow’s boats for the coming diving season. Together with the existing two sets, one of which is located at Scuba Doctors and one at my place in Frankston South we should now have the capability to put two divers onto O2 long enough for medical assistance to be reached on all of our diving days.

A Gale Warning caused the cancellation of todays planned dive on VHB54. Still keen for a dive I headed to Blairgowrie for an early morning splash.
