    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.


    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

    Cow Springs - Using GoPro 6 in Camera Mode with Video Lights

    I'm using the Hero 6 Black. I had to order their U/W housing with it since the housings for the older models don't fit it. Their housing is good to 196 ft depth.
