Nah he is crying as he is a regular human.... had it been a Norwegian diver, the hand would not have been gloved, and the diver would still be down there now, without a care in the world for the massive deco penalty that he was incurring.

Nah he is crying as he is a regular human...
The irony is, I used to dive in Norwegian ice-diving mitts. Ugly, cumbersome things but great for the poor circulation in my hands. I always suffered with Reynaud's Syndrome thanks to my maternal genes and as it worsened over the years it's one of the main reasons I stopped diving in cold water.
But on that day, for the money shot, it was decided I'd wear paper-thin neoprene dive gloves that made my hands look like hands but which may as well have not been there at all. That's why I was crying!

Are you repainting the crossed Union Jacks on the bow and if so, what do the two flags signify?

(apologies if that's a daft question).

Hey guys, just seeing that picture of the fuel tank being painted and found myself wondering how you drain any water out of the fuel?

A sudden slug of water through the fuel pump won’t do it any good (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/granule/FR-1998-04-13/98-9581). Mixed in with the fuel, the lubricity impact is negligible, but in practice the water tends to seperate out and sink to the bottom.

The crossed union flags represent a British boat attempting a record in Britain. Throughout her career she ran with crossed Union and Stars and Stripes as well as crossed union and Australian flags. CN7 carried the same.

...and continuing that spirit, when she goes to Scotland we've talked about her having the Union flag and the Scottish Saltire on her nose, not unlike my current avatar.

**ANORAK ALERT**
In 1957 K7 ran on Consiston Water with Union/US crossed flags.
Not sure about the Scottish saltaire idea. Without wishing to get all political, I would prefer to see the crossed Union flags returned. Just my personal opinion.

Politics have nothing to do with it, the idea is to say thank you to a place that quite simply said 'yes' in the face of all the negativity and wibble that have come from other directions. The crossed Union flags would of course return on the final, finished boat.
