'Serving Divers Worldwide'

Dry Suit Diving 3rd Ed.
by Steve Barsky

We've had snow, rain and sunshine so far this April. This Easter holiday is set to be a scorcher with temperatures on the south coast predicted to be in the mid 20's with lots of sun. You're a brave soul however if you consider doing a lot of UK diving without a dry suit. Barsky's new updated book tells you the complete history of exposure suits, explains the different types of dry suit and the uses they can be put to, even down to diving in contaminated water. A thorough examination is made of valves, undergarments and accessories available as well as set-up and maintenance. For experienced or novice divers this book fills an important role in a country where the correct choice of exposure suit can make the difference between a miserable and a highly enjoyable dive.


SS Thistlegorm
by John Kean

John Kean's brand new book examines one of the world's best shipwrecks the 'ss Thistlegorm'. This hardback book includes full colour photographs of the wreck today and the only two pictures known to exist of the Thistlegorm on the surface. Spanning a period of over one hundred years Kean traces the history of the ship from the origins of Thistle Ships to the wreck as a current diving attraction. A fascinating account of the ship's final hours through a series of exclusive interviews is given. For a shipwreck that has been visited by almost a quarter of a million divers this book serves to bring history alive on this most popular wreck.
