Gan Skin Divers Kept Busy
Gan Island Post 15th February 1964

   Although members of the Sub Aqua club spend most of their under-water time in spectacular competition with the turtles and the porpoises, from time to tome their talents are required for more serious business.
   Take the angling Club for example.  A keener set of chaps it would be difficult to find, and once their boat has trogged its way into a likely spot in the lagoon, it's a question of eyes down for the first bite, and the next man to speak buys the drinks.  Unfortunately although expert in the piscatorial art, they are not terribly bright about seamanship, and they have acquired a mystifying habit of hurling their anchor overboard before first taking the precaution of attaching it to their boat.  Now you could lose a lot of anchors that way, but with the sub-aqua stalwarts at the alert, they have all been recovered, the last one being unearthed from its premature watery grave some 50' down in the Gan Gap.
   But even the experts have their problems.  Recently the marker buoy on Beacon shoal broke its moorings and drifted onto B??? Beach, Once again the underwater experts were called out - and finally they located the broken mooring chain which was quickly winched up by the M.C.S crew of G.P.3 and attached to a new buoy on the Beacon Shoal.  an excellent piece of team-work between the Amateurs and the Professionals !
