    WOW! I saw this vid a while back, but nice to see it again. Can you imagine diving with a brass helmet and no tanks, while tied by a rope! And smoking during SIs, ..sheesh!!

    Well done Mikeyy, it's amazing to see old footage for comparison to the modern day.

    You might be surprised Pearl-Guider's that the lugger called Kim B7 as they are sailing out has been on the market for quite a while now. It's been modified quite a bit but was doing sunset cruises out of Darwin. Lovely boat but you've got to be a fanatic to keep up with the maintenance on a wooden boat. It's interesting to see boats surviving so long though.
