  1. Connecting BOV to off-board bailout

    Is there someone that can walk me through the parts and how to configure attaching a BOV to off-board bailout. I have seen some images of hose configurations, etc. but I am not sure I get the whole picture as to how it is properly done.
  2. In lieu of an expensive BOV, for the time being I have decided to add a 2nd stage hung by a necklace around my neck as a quick bailout reg while I pull out the bailout bottle reg. I am diving an optima. The reg on the diluent bottle has a hose splitter that splits an LP hose into three. From the splitter, I have one hose that goes to the ADV, a second is the LP inflator hose for the wing, and the third opening is unused. The splitter tucks between the O2 and diluent bottle about half way up the back of the unit. I will use a flex hose and swivel on the 2d stage. Anyone have anything similar that can recommend the right length hose for this arrangement. I am thinking an 18" hose, maybe 20" at most.

    I hope some if this made sense.
