    A Simple and DIR Tow Rope.
    By Charles Ayash

    One of the CDS Directors showed me this last year and I feel that these simple pics are pretty much self explanatory.

    1) The Basic tow rope is a braided nylon between 1/8 -3/16 dia with loops at each end.

    Between 5'-7' of total length is all that is needed depending on the divers build.

    2) The rope is fed through the loops to create a cinch.


    3) Cinch loop is passed over the DPV Handles


    4) Cinch is tightened

    Repeat 2,3,4 for each Handle.

    Towing

    5) Pin each trigger and set prop pitch to lowest setting.


    6) Feed Bolt snap under the Lid handle and clip off to Front D Ring of Crotch Strap.


    7) This is a Burn Tester for more on this please refer to http//:www.wkpp.org

    We haven’t closed on the property yet so I only rough measurements. It doesn’t look like I will be able to put any shelving in wider than about 20”

    how big is the shelf? You may need a baby like walter kidde or rix sa3 IF you can find one. even my SA6 is not really "shelf" sized due to the weight

    steels: plug them... one less thing to worry about. AL's... follow the rules, one less thing to worry about.
