    Hey guys, I'd be keen to bring my camera platform (Seadoo RX).
    I'm also a keen sports photographer and will bring my nice Nikon, which hates water but has a great zoom. I also have a Pentax Optio W10 waterproof 6mp camera that also does video. Could be a great day.
    Just let me know when.
