The Skin Deep Bell Trophy CabinetLatest count 42
Welcome to my vault of divers who have Kissed Arse! .......My name is Ian Taylor

Before we start I had better inform those that don't know the rules of Skin Deep diving.
Rule 1 If you actually discover a ships bell when diving from Skin Deep and recover it to the decks of skin deep you have to kiss my arse! No more rules ! This is a very traditional aboard skin deep and was originally initiated by the late Andy Smith. The way I see it is "you're either in the vault or your not"!...... Enjoy!
Skin Deep Skipper Ian Taylot
