Pridhamsleigh Lake wellie rescue
« on: January 20, 2018, 07:04:07 pm »
If anyone is diving in Prid Lake any time soon and happens to stumble across an EUSS wellie then we'd love to have it back! There's a pint in it for the rescuers :)

A pint in the welly?
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

Haha, there'll be more than a pint in the welly at the moment! :lol:

Cheers Joe, it was dropped on the near side of the arch near the surface. The water level was quite high yesterday, with the anchor for the dive line about 0.5m under the surface.

There is a wet Prid trip planned for this week so perhaps somebody will take a mask and weights if there is a pint or two involved!

When are you planning on going down? I don't have a lot planned for the coming week so could join maybe.

That would be much appreciated - I'll gratefully buy pints up to the value of a pair of wellies, so that's probably about three pints? X marks the spot, ish, but since I didn't lose it, I can't be sure.

My Aigle's are about £140, not sure where you drink but I can get more than three pints for that! ;)

That's a lot for a pair of wellies, joe; what's so special about them?

I usually get mine for 50p from the car boot sale  :tease:

Wow - they even do leather wellies. And they're only £230. Ouch.

I pulled a few wellies out before losing all viz and giving up. Probably not yours though. Will be going down again next week I imagine. Does it have a name or respond to a particular call?
