Fascinating site on deep oceans and what’s there. Linked to National Geographic. We were part of the Sydney build team for James Cameron’s Submarine that dived to the deepest part of the ocean, the Marianas Trench (Dianna & Warwick Bisset; our bios are in the team section. What a once-in-a-lifetime project!)

One of our suppliers, we can get their full range, ask us for prices.

Spooky Men’s Chorale. A choir that Warwick, the other half of Rocklily, is in. A bunch of men singing in deep voices, nicely, deeply or just taking the piss out of being a man.
