    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

    Hollis H-160 replacement battery?

    25.6v life was the recommendation the whole time. Those are also, and unfortunately incorrectly referred to as 24v lifepo4 batteries since they are designed to replace SLA in many applications. It is...

    Both excellent books. Even though I already have both of them, that price is tempting.

    I accept your apology.

    So I believe your answer is that you've switched gears to yet another voltage (25.6v).

    Last hydro May 2016.

    They are located in Rockville, MD. You would need to pick up.

    Hollis H-160 replacement battery?

    correcting blatantly wrong information is not semantics.

    I personally would still go with a nominal 25.6v 8s pack. I'm not aware of any motors that would be wound for the slightly higher voltage...

    Looking for Worthington/Genesis hot dipped galvanized HP-100s, will consider Fabers, and LP-85.

    Attending the NSS-CDS conference next week, and diving West Palm this weekend. Prefer to pickup.
