    We've got a poll on our CHUM site - when do you fix your own gear? And what are your favorite scuba hacks? We'd love to know.

    I'm not sure I'd call it my "favorite", but I seem to find myself often standing with a lighter in front of my house, burning the ends of a cord or a bungee while trying not to inhale the plastic fumes. Usually, trying to fiddle with some attachment: longer, shorter, thicker, stiffer, switch to a cord or to a bungee, or with a different boltsnap, or tied differently, or yet something else, largely through trial and error, to reconfigure or to better streamline my equipment.

    I'm always looking at other people's gear to see what they have where and how it's attached.
