    look what happens if you cross a Dolphin with a Posaidon and a Submatix

    Finally i got it all together and my mission is finished.
    So far. Next will be a intensive testing phase. Just to prevent some questions about the Bailout tank size: I will use my MCCR for recreational dives only! Adding some other bigger Tanks somewhere in future is still possible. Thanks to the Possaidon ADV/BOV there is nothing remaining inside the shell exept the Sensorports. Everything is done in a way so that dismantling goes fast and without any special tools.

    Nice! What tank holders are you using for DIL/O2?

    Looks interesting - but I can't believe after all the money you have apparently spent you are still using the stock Drager wing and harness from the Dolphin...no thoughts to upgrade to a plate and harness?

    Good work either way.

    Thanks. I thougt this question will come.hehehe What i can say is, that i have used the dräger Dolphin for more than 10 Years now. I have never had any problems with the Harness andthe Wing. The counterlungs are closer to my back wich makes the WOB easy. Now that there is no Bypassunit inside the shell comfort has grown.,

    Hello UP, you hit the nail on the head. The Dolphin BMCL design is the best because it has the CLs as close to your own lungs as is possible in a BMCL design. I have dived several BMCL units and always thought the Dolphin had the best WOB. Good idea moving the bypass, the location of which was NOT a good part of the design... -Andy

    Thanks Andy,
    the only thing i am worried about at the moment is that the posaidon BOV/ADV could possibly inject the dil too early, due to the fact that it was constructed for a use with OTS counter lungs. There will be a bigger hydrostatic pressure difference by using it with bmcls. But a testdive will show the truth. I realized that the WOB of the BOV becomes harder once you switch to closed mode. This gives me some hope.

    I have BMCL on my Poseidon MK6, and the BOV is firing with slightly head down position.
