Engine problems with the Vicious Guppy brought a full contingent of professionals to Sea Rovers. First we complain to the dealer, then the dealer to the distributor, then the distributor to the regional offices. Then with enough complaints everybody comes to visit and help sort out the problem.

The Commodore looking slightly contemplative as the engines are put through their paces with the diagnostic software.
She may be a might poorly but she’ll survive to run many more dive trips to come. And though she be fibreglass, she has the mighty oaken heart of pirate ships of yore. Garr! Shiver me fibre!
Yes its official. After months of work and waiting the ‘Cynical Seahorse’ hits the high seas.
Like her sister ship the ‘Vicious Guppy’ she’s small and neat. Fitting in with our Sea Rovers philosophy of small groups, personal service plus fun. More open plan than her sister and sporting twin Evinrude etec 40hp she’ll run 30knots with a light load. Not bad for getting you back to that afternoon massage after a lazy days diving.

And yet another days diving…. etc etc
And that be Divemaster Wayan in the foreground. Garr!
