    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

    Socks or boots on a new drysuit?

    Agreed, as long as you include "fin keepers" in the equation.

    I love these bottles. Have 2 pair that I use with my KISS Sidewinder. I fill them to 3000 psi and get quite a bit more volume than a set of Aluminum 80's.

    Stuff at Peacock

    Did you call the park number and leave a message? They are good about keeping items in a lost and found, and not all visitors that find thing are cave divers

    New survey tool - MNemo

    Make a survey of your home, or yard or whatever. I don't need real data, I just need something output by the unit to make a script for it.

    I'll probably aim for python, since it's easier for...

    great as doubles, I use them for teaching in OW pretty regularly
    Great sidemount bottles for small dives, though if you have HP100's or LP85's they're a bit better for the size, and if you have...

    Great single tanks, good for oxygen on longer dives.

    2250psi 72's

    The two problems with LP72s can be:

    1) Bias : some dives shops have this idea that they are old and unsafe.

    2) Lined: Many of them have any epoxy liner that can cause some dive shops to...
