    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

    Don't touch anything that isn't clearly solid rock that has been touched previously. :)

    Florida?s Vanishing Springs

    Yes, it is sad to see and I came to the sport late in the game. I can only dream of the springs 25-30 years ago and earlier.

    Florida?s Vanishing Springs

    The book is a good read. As cave divers we only exist because these springs exist,but they are dying a slow death.

    If you could only buy the one lens, which one?

    Is this what you mean? The "optical center" of the lens? Which is theoretically at the "focal length" away from the focal plane?

    The focal...

    Not a page-turner, but an incredibly detailed account of the current and future hopes of Florida's Springs.

    Mini ox II

    Ok so this is a mini ox 1 not a 2. I am sorry. The unit itself is at least 8 years old and from what I can tell the spare o2 sensor is at least a year old and is still in the sealed package.
