In Topic: Official Stolen/lost equipment serial number registrar

15 November 2010 - 07:08 AM

Afternoon chaps and chapesses.

A mate of mine has had a stack load of gear nicked from his house on Friday (12 Nov). He's not an underwater photographer, but someone may see it somewhere for sale etc and put two and two toegether. Was nicked in West Lothian, Scotland.

If anyone hears about any of the stuff below, or sees it for sale or Fleabay or equivelant, please can they let me know through my profile?

Many thanks.
Jim

In Topic: Some Brothers & Daedalus piccies

Great pics mate. Well done.

Quick shark question... I've been considering a trip over that way, with one of the main reasons to dive with oceanic white-tips. Did you see any or are they not as common as I have been led to believe?
Nice silky pic, he looks very close!


Hi Luke

Thanks!

We saw one oceanic white tip while diving, at Little Brother. It was only about 6-7ft long. It swam past us, but some distance away, near the surface. I know people have often seen 3 or 4 at the Brothers and also Elphinstone on a single dive, but from what I understand the sightings at Elphinstone are becoming less frequent, as there are now not only plenty of liveaboards going there but also day boats from the Marsa Alam area. I did 2 dives at Elphinstone and didn't see a shark of any description on either dive.

We also saw a couple of oceanics on the surface at night meandering around the boat at the Brothers.

I suspect it's very much luck of the draw with oceanics!
