    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

    Is Off! Spray safe for mask and silicone seals?

    I don't remember if it was OFF or Cutter, but there was a time that I had some on my face, and by way of running sweat it made its way onto my regulator mouthpiece, and I can testify that the stuff...
