Just back from a most enjoyable few days in the Lakes. Some sun, some wind, some rain, but there was Bluebird Bitter in the Black Bull and the excellent Tower Bank Inn at Near Sawrey has five hand pulls of proper beer! :D
Had a look at the Bluebird Wing in the Ruskin - it will be very impressive once the big blue boat is in there, though the interactive display did seem to suggest that the tail and the engine were lifted separately. Or was I just being (Bluebird Bitter induced) thick?

Well it's been an average morning... Been to the osteopaths to get my neck and back straightened, will no doubt have the work undone by tonight :) good news is I may have scored a new dive tank from the nice lady who was fixing me (no puns) she just needs to check if its a din or yoke fitting valve.... Fingers crossed its the latter as my regs are yoke type. That just leaves a good and some fins and I am good to go !

Im sure you could swap the first stage from yoke to din fitting

Just spoke to Bill it's a straight swap to remove the a clamp and put a din fitting in its place

Yes you can, you can also get an adaptor but its money I ain't going to spend unless I am diving all the time.... Which is unlikely, Johns rubbing off on me clearly !

would still be cheaper than buying a new bottle though wouldn't it?

Depends on what she wants for her bottle.... If its a DIN bottle I will leave it, unless any of the lads have din regs and need a bottle to go with it :-) just completing my kit slowly but surely, no point getting loads of Gucci kit to stick in the wardrobe

Ah we'll not the end of the world if it is a DIN then (pending on what she wants for it of course ) plus it will no doubt need a test so will need to stick it in with cormetons.

You mean you're not just going to stick it onto the HP compressor and fill it up regardless?
