Wreck dive with the Sinn U1

Post by bedlam » November 15th 2014, 8:09am

Diving on an old fishing trawler this morning. The depth was around 17m, water temp 18C and visibility pretty average at 9m. Great dive :D

Ditto! Did you find any dead bodies inside that boat? They must be pretty grody by now.


Nah...all the organic remains have been cleared out. Still a fair bit of wiring and piping though :-)

If that boat was in the south Puget Sound, the methheads would have ripped all that out by now!

Very Nice. Tell me...I am not seeing any fishing line nor the worst, braided line. See much of that stuff? Do you carry metal cutting scissors?
Story I read: A while back on fairly deep wreck dive a bleeding heart went to release a grouper that had a hook in its mouth on a tether of about 20 feet of line and steel leader. The end of the line was attached to a piece of metal on the wreck. When PETA diver got close the grouper in freak out mode went around him like Indians circling a wagon train. Hog tied him like Tater Porter wrapped the calf up in the 97' calf roping finals in Vegas. Cutting him out with knives with a 125 grouper flying around at warp 1 was not easy. Scissors in the BC from then on. I have cut steel leader easily with them.
Cheers

The pic of you (or whomever) swimming into the hull (?) in the backlit shot is out of this world, man.

The Sinn, of all your wristies, consistently looks the best underwater, I think. That is to say, the most visible, legible, useable genuine precision instrument made to actually get wet and go deep. Uhhm uh in the ocean I mean, uhhhh ackkhemm repeatedly. Forever. Uhh give me a minute, won't you?

Gee- now I know what it's like to be conj, with the boners and the fapping and lubricating goats and doughbermens and old women and God knows what. I think I'ma see somebody before this gets out of hand.

Ok- anyway, I'm not a diver and I'm only going to buy one diver for my transitioning little compendium, but, I am going to get rid of some long had, rode hard chronos suitable solely for gifting to youngsters, and get my hands around onea those instrumented, extra tegimented - hardened cold, smooth steel tools chronos of theirs for myuhh-fapuhhHHuhhhUHUH- uh-uh-uhHHHH-uh-ohgottago.

I carry shears in my BC pocket and a knife with a serrated razor edge on a clip near my low-pressure hose. Both cut metal line efficiently. I have had my BC caught in wiring and metal fishing line...the knife is easiest to reach the way I am set up and it was cut easily. I have cut a Stingray free from steel line too...I come from above though as I don't want to be on the same plane with the fish as, unsurprisingly, they will swim about quite a lot when they are trapped and terrified.

The U1 is a really good dive watch. Negatives would be: tiny bezel markings are hard to read with older eyes, and the external AR is a pain in the arse unless you can stop to clean it with a micro-fibre cloth several times a day. I haven't included half a dozen pics in the above where the light caught smudges on the crystal (probably from when I was putting sunscreen on earlier).
