    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

    The ironic thing is you reported this screen shot from your cell phone at 13:13

    Underwater drill

    We had a Nemo at work over in Dubai. It was cool, but pneumatic was much easier 99% of the time.

    Switching from canister to hand held

    Any reason you don't mount it on your crotch strap? Right about where the leg meets the meat. Check out the xDeep canister light mount. It works surprisingly well. I had my reservations, but I ended...

    Ginnie Cave DPV

    On my way home after a short dive trip. Hit JB, Little River and Peacock. Didn’t even bother with Ginnie now that they require CCR Cave.

    Morrison conditions

    Friend went today and said viz was very good. However, he said some A-hole dragged on of the steel picnic table to the bottom of the lower cavern.

    Well it seems they finally found him. I am sure the recovery was bad after 3 weeks. Definitely sad especially being that young.

    Sad news

    Truth is most of the fossils and artifacts in this “museum” where collected without any official INAH permits. IMO that is the reason for the closure.

    Right, one can always insert a propeller bit which makes it handheld scooter and restrictions blower.
