Club Boats - Past and Present

Current Club Boat

LSAC has a Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat (RIB) available for use by club members, this allows us additional flexibility with training and dive trips. Once suitably qualified, club members can hire the boat for personal use as well as for dive trips.

Chilly Dip

Chilly Dip was bought brand new in 2009 from Ribcraft as a replacement for Lucky Dip.

Chilly is a Ribcraft 585 (5.85m) with a Suzuki 140hp 4-stroke fuel injected outboard engine and hydraulic steering. She has a double console with side by side jockey seats making her ideal for training purposes whilst still retaining a large dive platform and more than enough space to stow 6 full sets of dive kit.

Historic Club Boats

Lucky Dip

Lucky Dip was purchased by the club with the aid of a lottery grant in February 2000, her name was chosen to keep with the theme of the grant. She was a 5.8m Humber Destroyer with a 4 stroke Yamaha 100hp engine and was configured such that she was an ideal dive boat for 6 divers.

Lucky had her first sea trials on 18th February 2000 followed by a boat handling and diver coxswain course. She was officially launched by Lizie Bird, the BSAC National Dive Officer on the 18th April 2000 at Stoney Cove. She went on her first dive trip in Easter 2000.

Skinny Dip

Skinny Dip was bought to replace Swift Diver in 2005, she was a 5m Humber Attack with a 75hp 2-stroke Mercury outboard engine. The main driving points behind her purchase was to provide a boat that the majority of club members could tow whilst still being able to go to sea.

Skinny boasted modern electronics, a large dive deck and enough space to stow kit for up to 4 divers.
