OK, the Warilda is about 48mtrs.

C'mon Alan, I'll get you on a rebreather yet!!

It'll be the easiest way to catch Bass - ever.
Ahh, may need a spearguns as well. Got a few of them.

Andy can be boat cover, Ron the Cabin Boy, Cascars the executive chef, ChrisP Chief Engineer.

Now I know how much they cost.

I'll get some Trimix in the unit and clean up that Gull wreck for starters.
Then the Brissie for a nice second dive on the way home.....mmm, fish for tea.
