    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

    If you can't tell the difference between a bleached rock that has been manhandled by others and a clay bank then don't touch anything.

    Pull and glide is a term that probably should be removed from our lexicon. Pull and pull would suggest high flow system where physical contact is needed, but if a person can glide, then swimming may...

    Yep, sometimes that "clearly solid rock" turns out to actually be clay.

    You should've negotiated to have UPS pay to ship it back to you. :rollguy
