    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

    Leaking BC inflator fitting

    I found one that appears to be the same size on McMaster Carr, it is a -903. I have emailed DGE, asking what size O-rings go in the adapter.

    Leaking BC inflator fitting

    There are two different size o-rings you can find in an inflator hose. What I call standard and US. The smaller one looks like a US o-ring, this one you only find in American hoses.

    I think I see what the problem is. There is a picture below. The one on the left is a standard -011 O-ring. The one on the right is what I have.
