    Mission accomplished

    Was finally able (after two months) to get out into the water to test another version of the dive sled. This one was the charm. It glided through the water effortlessly, had great flotation and had no challenges with the float ball lines of the Sanctuary. Like the other two models this one also carried three tanks. Even though it is fine as it is now, I might make one adjustments such as a one foot lengthening to accomodate a bigger area for a dry storage box. Other than that it is fine. If anyone is interested in having one made, I suggest you get in touch with Nigel. He can be found most late mornings to early afternoons at Why Not on Monday, Wednesday and Friday or call

    As I mentioned in previous posts, this is a diving accessory for staying out longer and covering a much bigger area than possible with the usual single tank. Allow for more photographs under what could be perfect and longer dive conditions and being able to capitilize on them. Be able to enjoy a drink and food simply by surfacing and getting it out of the dry storage box you can easily put on the sled. You can then rest on the sled itself. There are many more applications of course depending on where you dive and what your diving purposes are.

    Brilliant Observation RHB

    Another genius heard from. Yes RHB I must admit that one of the things I have really put alot of thought into is someone stealing my tanks while I am using them with a dive flag floating on the Sled and my dive bubles surfacing. Especially when I am in a santuary.

    It looks like you're making some progress here. Don't worry about those critics as they're the ones that can help you reach your goals.

    Think about that Filipino scientist from NASA who runs his car using water and a 12 volt battery. Never heard about him even with this gas crisis that we now have. But I bet he's a happy camper now and is still running his car as far as he wanted to go!

    There's always risks involved even with Viagra. Good luck to your project and be safe!

    Hello Gold Surfer

    Dont think that a dive sled is somthing new, so it has nothing to do with NASA and a 12 v battery en I think viagra is not involved with it.

    Greetings J.Diver

    Sorry for the travesty Diver and I guess you didn't pick up something from my comment. Keep an open mind to release some intelligence that's been narrowed in your world.

    And about the scientist and Viagra? They are presented as a " challenge " to PIdiver.....and there's some truth in them too!

    You sounded like a drunk when you posted your comment 'cause you're acting like a " mug " trying to pick a fight in a bar. I hope you just keep it here in the board and not in your adapted world right now. Dangerous.

    There are risks involved to accomplish something that can revolutionized an existing knowledge. Someone has to be a guinea pig to test his idea.

    Remember it killed millions in Japan just to test the atomic bomb! Yeah..and thanks for that test....we now have nuclear arms!
