    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

    Looking for PST Steel 80s

    Do you mean the stubby short HP 3500 PSI tanks that are 7-1/4" diameter with 7/8" neck threads?

    Tannic pics in the Ear

    Looks like SF2s are the preferred units to be in the ear :)

    Great job Ken and Kyle and everyone who helped! Thanks, folks.

    It's great to see so many friends at the workshop. I did Andy's Radiolocation workshop; very cool stuff. Also Kirill's photography...

    Is the line through the restriction still holding and going straight through and down to the floor? Or did it pop it's tie off and get pulled back to the right? I don't see it in the picture.

    Fairly certain we?ve exceeded our quota for inbound Canadians already for 2018.
    I believe Bonaire is still accepting applications. ...

    I had fun, and got in a dive, but then came down with a cold and had to head home soon after the workshop was over.
