    the sad fact is there only two more days to enter in it ....
    then its all over ........
    only to be continued , over the next couple of months ,as we start to make dates and plans for the next chapter of this Zambian adventure ....

    good luck on getting that back, but how you go about trying to hook it in 860 metres (2820 feet!!) of water is beyond me!! :confused:

    470 fathom , makes it sound easier ,mike
    will need a heavier grapple hook and some long heavy chain
    so I can direct onto the hard bank and the tow it down hill and hopefully hook straight on to it and pull it off backwards .......
    sound esay don't it ......

    was dreaming of Africa , wanting to get back there , and not watching what I was doing and towed to far, when it happened .
