Dive Report: Dr Strangelove 18/11/09 Great place for training, easy entry, sheltered and variable depth. There are permanent shot lines at 6m and 9m maybe one deeper great for CBL exercises. At 10-12m there is a big checkers board for those who feel like a quick match. At about 16m there is an old Ice-cream van. There is not much life a few smaller fish and then a rumour of a bigger one (can't remember the species).

Dive Report: 12/1/10 Jorawley Did a cpl of dives in Boddam quarry when the sea was too rough for a dip with new drysuit - ideal facility for kit test or training, but that's about it. Certainly not worth doing when a few people have been in the same day or day before.
