    Went diving and survived!

    A big thanks to Stuart as he had the dubious pleasure of being my safety diver whilst I gave the homebuild it's first open water dive(in Wraysbury)yesterday!
    We dived for 40 min and it worked fine, but I've got to find a better way to hold the over the shoulder CL's down.
    No real details as the unit's not finished yet (the drive tanks are side slung at the moment) but it was nice to just get it in the water.

    It's just a shame that I've now got comedy bouyancy and have to go back to square one with it.

    How are you attaching the Counterlungs?
    Most are held down with Fastex clips, weight pockets, and velrco (industrial strength.)

    I am not sure what you are using for a BC but if it is a harness and wings then I add a belt slide and d-ring and use the same d-ring slot for looping your material for the fastex clip or carabiner for temp hold assuming that they are over-the -shoulder.

    Good luck, keep up the hard work.

    Andrew,
    They are Inspiration lungs, I've got the clips, so I think I'm going to have to mail Tobin about his fittings to go on the waist strap of the harness.
