    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

    Probably did... what doesn't kill you makes you better. Still a very great dive for my first time there.

    Silver Glen Spring was closed today, police investigation

    "Forestry officials have posted a sign that forbids people from free diving in the springs." Just supports my bias about "officials".

    Switching from canister to hand held

    I switched to the Big Blue 4500 from a LM canister on my butt. Notice that I'm not quite as foot heavy in sidemount (I needed to lighten up down there). Love the light with a hard goodman handle...

    Switching from canister to hand held

    Nothing more than convenience and curiosity.

    FWIW I use a LM 12W light with a direct connect battery from the 9W handheld for a primary back up on a soft mount so it can sit comfortably in my...

    Switching from canister to hand held

    Ah, gotcha. I guess I misunderstood what the issue was. I thought it’s current position was the problem. That being the case, what’s the drive to go handheld if your current setup isn’t causing any...

    Ken, I have yet to find someone that knows everything and new things to be learned. You taught me many years ago I was capable of carrying double 95s from the parking lot to Jug Hole...:-)
