    the-mother-buoy

    Hi,

    is anybody using this?
    http://www.aquatec.co.uk/shop/458483...r-buoy/8213606

    Is there a trick to pack it in a nice way (with attached bottle)?
    I love it but it takes so much space during diving.

    Regards,
    Scotty

    I think it will not be easy to get this beast to stand up straight in the water.

    This picture is without the 0.4 liter tank attached (the 0.25 liter does not provide enough volume).
    Looking for setups with tank (without reel).

    You need a group of divers or a way to much lead.
    Once you are on the surface it´s fine.

    Re: the-mother-buoy

    Hi, The Motherbuoy was never intended to standup but to provide lots of buoyancy on the surface if you have either lots of kit to recover like cameras and scooters or as a buoyancy aid for tired divers that their guide or instructor would carry. However there is no reason you can't use it as a DSMB.

    One way to carry it is the Aquatec Backpacker (it's an upside down pocket that straps on the side of your tank or CCR and you can retrieve the contents- typically lift bags or big reels and DSMB's by pulling on a retaining cord) but it's a little "recreational" for some users I know a few CCR divers who use them, they strap them to a stage.

    FWIW We have made "shorter" Motherbuoys on request, you can have whatever you like within reason and price, we can add different inflation methods, change it to yellow etc...

    Drop us an email if you want a special.

    This is what I did.
    Also clipped it to my 80s but don't like it.
    For "small" dives I attach it to my left waist D-ring.
    For bigger ones to my scooter ring, or leave it on the boat.
