    Untimely death of a rEvo

    Well, Well, Well,

    Swadiver was planning to go diving this morning, but had major issues with his Rebreather holding a neg or pos test. He asked me to come over and help him out. What a foolish idiot he was.

    We looked at everything, tested everything, tore it apart and looked some more. Finally we decided to remove the CL's and have a really good look. We discovered that the previous owner had used silicone to try and seal up the inhale CL P-ports and there was silicone all over.

    Here is what it looks like right now:



    I left and came home after I forced Jeff to feed me at Chipolte's. He still thinks that I am going to help him put it back together after he gets a few new parts.

    Anyway, now that his RB is dead, I am going to take his wife out on a dive tomorrow. He can come along to drive the boat if he wants to though.
    .

    It would appear that YOU suck TOO good and that is causing the loop to implode on itself.

    Your boyfriend must love that.
