hi, I dive for scollops off rye occasionally. I use my own boat, I run a hookah unit from it, and can send 2 divers down at once. I use to use tanks, and have a padi ticket. I find the hookah less encumbering and easier on my back. As I'm getting older I find it harder to find people to go with. Id like to go out the front and chase crays but I'm not familiar with port Phillip heads. I was interested in older divers as they are less likely to laugh when I tell them I don't use a bcd. and use a home made hookah unit. If you may be interested and willing to share the fuel costs please let me know. I live a fairly hectic life so the dives maybe spasmodic. john

John, you might be best to look into joining a club like Victorian Sub Aqua Group ( www.vsag.org.au ) which have a contingent of old farts who like to collect seafood. They get out a bit midweek too, which might suit.

Whilst I believe your advice above is good, I can't agree with your statement of VSAG having " a collection of old farts". Individually old farts some of us may be, but VSAG doesn't actually aim to collect them. Most members joined VSAG well before reaching middle age ...... perhaps even when young and fit. In many cases that may have been a few years ago. Becoming an "old fart" just seems to happen by itself.....

Won't be long before you have to admit to being an "old fart" too .


Next VSAG meeting Tuesday 18 March, 7PM meal for 8PM meeting, Bells Hotel
Visitors welcome - even Alan.

( I REALLY need to learn how to add smilies of various sorts to postings here, ... )

John,
You don't have to go to the VSAG meetings, just get onto their e mail group to see who wants to go diving. You are a bit young though, I think a Seniors Card might be required for the midweek divers! (OK, mine is coming)[:o)]
