    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

    I think Wes was diving in the area back then. Mark Wenner might know the history.

    Here are those brackets they're using. I just want to get my money back on them, they were $60. Let me know if you're interested, if not somebody else is second in line.
