Underwater Potholer has been won!!

UNDERWATER POTHOLER HAS BEEN WON!!

 :thumbsup: Congratulations, Maj on winning Duncan's new book  :thumbsup:

Here's Maj's winning poem:

It tells a tale of darker places,
Far removed from the world's rat races.

I've often wondered what's beyond the sump,
Would diving be the obvious jump?

Tales to be told of worry and strife,
Tangled in line, where's the knife?

One third in, one third out,
One third left to sort it all out.

Nice clear viz as you head on in,
But it's gone to bat s**t as soon as you fin.

Is it left or is it right,
Page 62, this seems tight?

Service the regs, it needs a grommet,
Here we go, where's me wallet?

The kit's not heavy when you're in the water,
But to get it there you'll need a porter.

Take good care of your porter,
You don't want them shouting out for a doctor.

I think on balance, I'll read the book,
And never need to take a look.

Reminds me not to be a cave diver,
And if I win, it's less than a fiver.

Is that really you, Maj? I hardly recognized you without your 'trade-mark' green helmet.
