    Glad others felt this was a lame “guide” too. My wife got me the subscription for the holiday but I won’t be renewing it.

    Where some might see two unrelated problems, I see a problem and a solution. You're welcome.

    That was exactly the boat they were listing and I know this because I was sitting on the sofa thumbing through the magazine one night when Mrs Flush saw that advertisement and made me look it up online. Then came the next 20 minutes of discussion not of why she and I would not go on it, but why I would not spend 14k to take the kids on with us if we ever decided to go. My kids get Blackbeards if anything.

    Thank you for confirming! The crazy thing is, it wasn't an advertisement, it was an article on diving in Komodo....but we may as well call it an advertisement for the boat.

    Plop the kids on a budget boat and tell them we'll see you in 7 days, or maybe we might see each other at a dive site...Have fun! :D

    Oh yea you are exactly right. It had almost nothing to do with the actual diving as I recall and everything to do with there being two masseuses on board. Mrs Flush loves diving but I would be lying if I said the ratio of divers to massage therapists was not on her mind when we were discussing!

    Come on now tursiops, if the OP did not want paid advertisement, why would he use "Facebook, or read a newspaper, or watch TV, or go to the movies" for the PAID Political commentary. Other then FB for Business (Sadly) I have shut down all the rest.

    ROFL Sorry mate, I understood the point. I just could not resist. I wanted to added go outside and play, but as divers, we all do that already. :)
