G'day,

I've been told by a number of sources (none official) that the diver left a note on his car windscreen sometime Saturday night, and went for a solo night dive on his rebreather. Found by another diver, well known to many of us, at around 6:30 am on Sunday morning.

No doubt this would be a very stressful and upsetting incident for all concerned. Our thoughts are with them.

Dive safe people.

Lloyd Borrett.
