To our (deceased) intrepid playmonaut!
May this ship fly in your honour!
The Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) team has bounced back from the recent loss of our heroic playmonaut and the Special Project Electronic Altitude Release System (SPEARS) control board, and is busy advancing our audacious spaceplane project on various fronts.

Surely until the remains of our intrepid hero are recovered and positively identified there is always hope. There's enough flotsom and jetsom in the Channel for him to seek refuge and return to shore ready for his next adventure.
beer? well of course the returning hero won't have to buy his own.
But do you mean you *have* located the drowned rig and it's 5 fathoms deep?
If that's so then at less than 10m it should not be a problem to recover the equipment even without a SCUBA (a wetsuit or even dry suit would help, as it's not exactly Caribbean seas at the peak of the season)?
Major Tom the Playmonaut, near a fortnight gone,
Forgot the cry of gulls and the deep sky well,
And the featherweight truss.
A current under the sea stroked his helmet in whispers, as he rose and fell,
He passed the stages of his construction and youth, entering the Channel.
Commentard or troll,
Oh you who hold the joystick and soar to windward,
Consider the Playmonaut, who was once heroic and intrepid as you.
