That day in 2001 will only ever be properly appreciated by those who were there. It was an amazing experience. Many landmarks since and more to come but that was the biggie - so far. One day soon we'll take the old girl home then get three sodding ties made too to put that one to bed once and for all! :lol: :lol:

Sigh.... such emotion......

If the boat had not been raised by Bill, having located it, I can assure you that the boat would have ultimately been raised by many divers, all of which would have hung their bits of aluminium alongside a porthole or some other under sea recovered article.

Also the dive related fatality rate on the lake would have probably tripled.

So on that basis "Diver Bill Smith" is also "Life saving Bill Smith"

I'm a bit lost, what is special about 16th anniversary?
I know long service awards usually appear 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 etc at work but 16 seems a bit of an odd number, I'm sure someone will point me in the correct direction.
As for ties, could I put forward the suggestion of watches, once we get to the 50th anniversary of the rebuild I would like a......... 😀 similar to the Red Arrows.

Speaking of anniversary merchendise

If I was still diving I could have suggested 50 year cylinder wrap... that would be very cool ! Kind of a patience pic meets the bluebird logo, and perhaps the statutory Karl Spencer logo (as used by eurotec)

Lots of divers of all shapes and sizes with tatty cylinders.

Not a special Anniversary as such John just a milestone reached. And didn't want it passing without a mention. As for Merchandise I think Richie's idea would be a good idea for the diving world as would an Oxford shirt and tie for the speed-freaks world . Caps would also go down well I feel. Could we not get a company such a Longines or Rolex on board to produce a time piece in recognition of the fact? May have missed the boat on that one though? Missed the boat :lol:

Hang on a minute 50th Anniversary John The grave robbers would probably have that away then :shock:

Would someone please tell me what a tie is actually for and why anyone would want a shirt that dismantles down the front?
