Schionning Cat Built by Gary Lancaster. Complete new Electrical fitout AC and DC carried out by Rodgers Marine, We completed the job early 2014, Gary has been building the Cat for approx 10years at his property on the mid north coast of NSW. She is his Retirement gift to himself along with his wife Penny. They have done a wonderful job, adding there own special touches to make her home. Gary is currently sailing south for a few trials, before chasing the endless summer up north. She was christned “Anam Cara” and fitted with Raymarine electronics and LED lighting throughout. Cheers Gaz it was great watching her get ready for sea, im looking forward to seeing all the great photos from the Whitsundays and beyond!!
My Dad and Simons Daughter Clare where in control of the air uptop and myself and Simon where hitting the water, i was Diving Lessels’ Desco MarkV helmet and suit and Simon was diving the US Navy Vintage Twin hose Aqualung Min Mag air set and Australian Navy Rubber Fenzy, once we got the site ready and divers dressed we entered the water to be greeted by the Southern Ocean current and a balmy water temp of 10degrees, Vis was approx 5Meters.
To make things even better I came out of the suit perfectly dry thanks to the aid of some simple cuff rings which Simon had just sourced from china.
The Dive was an amazing experiance and definently something I will be doing alot more of in the future.
I would like to Thank Simon for such an awesome experience.
