Divers Kept Busy
Gan Island Post 15th
| 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.
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 !
