    Minimalist single tank rig

    Yes, used to be the name in Europe (but I might be wrong) for doing a figure 8 with a strap and donning it like a jacket, the 8 being seen from the back.

    Minimalist single tank rig

    Hi It looks to me you are all overthinking this set-up. No need to be so complicated. If you want to dive single SM s80 or steel 72, just use a weight belt with a single D-ring for the bottom and a single bungee worn in Polish style for the top. Harness useless. Just turn the belt around your...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    Hi Reading all these posts about controlers, I am happy to dive my mCCRs and do regular dil flushes to validate the monitoring :wink: To the OP: choose an mCCR :) You will learn how to be more aware :) :)

    Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

    Ha ha ha. I knew IT's guys were so sensitive :) :) Why don't ITs fix problems instead of asking non-specialists to do more tasks?

    Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

    Hi it looks to me that SB (like a lot of other sites) has been taken over by some IT guy(s) who want(s) to make themself (ves) indispensable by creating more and more fences... If sites are attacked why don't ITs develop background tools to protect them. Asking people for 2FA is like the police...

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    Hi To add to the discusion about the GUE config. For me it makes sense but that doesn't make sense is why they conplicated it by putting the RB between the tanks! Why not keep the normal OC BM congig and just add a tube RB on the shoulder (Joki style) or SM (Sidekick, Flex, SF1,...)? With this...

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    and during that time some people dive to 100m a group of 3 with 3 configurations... Yes, it is not a mix team but why would you want a mix team there and will a GUE configuration be good?

    Computer and Backup Configuration for Rec Diver?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions but in fact they were rhetorical questions to try to bring the point that information is not to be confused with knowledge.

    Computer and Backup Configuration for Rec Diver?

    Ok, playing the Devil advocate, I dare to ask: who need a back-up computer for rec dives :) As for AI, what is the point? Don't you (general "you":))know your approximate consumption and is to watch the gauge 4 or 5 dives during the dive, a difficult task? Keep the easier one to read for...

    Yes you are right "helicoptering" must be done with moderation...like eveything else...well almost :)

    Revo absorbent cloth in exhale lung

    Hi Regarding drying hoses, the trick to get them with minimal water left after washing them is not only to let them dry and to "concertina" them (nice term:)) but also to shake them regularly during the drying time and also to remove xtra water by taking them by an end and "helicoptering"...
