I can also offer porthole removal and demolishing wrecks with explosives and if you do the explosives course I'll throw in how to collect dead fish and crustaceans killed by the blast for free.

Most of the brass has been nicked over the years and they're not all going to spew all their oil on the same day and oil is biodegradeable anyway so nowt much to fear there.

Truk has been done to death, a bit like Scapa. Never fancied either if I'm honest.

Yeah but you don't fancy any of the dive spots.

You should NEVER have dived Britannic, anything after that point was an anti climax. It's like summiting Everest then planning an adventure walk to Cheviot !

Ah, but Britannic was my last gas dive - I retired on Britannic. If I'd wanted to do Truk or Scapa I'd hve done them years earlier. If I was going diving somewhere and spending money to get there I wanted to be bloody sure there wasn't any other divers there when I got there. Anyway - there's officially more wrecks per mile of coastline between Flamborough and the Forth than anywhere else in the world, most of them unexplored too. Why would you want to go anywhere else?

The North Sea can do that in the summer and there's not a tourist in sight.
