    Sidemount CCR

    Hi,

    A few days ago, I had the opportunity to try the DecoDiver rebreather. It's a CCR built in the South of France by a bunch of enthusiastic divers (www.deepdevildivers.com), normally designed to be back mounted (see pictures in the "Other CCR" Gallery)

    With a few minor changes (sideway mouthpiece, OPV on exhalation counterlung, etc), it can be sidemounted. Good WOB, easy handling and use. Therefore, this unit could be a good potential candidate as a Bail-out rebreather.

    I know a few other CCRs that can also be sidemounted (EDO08, Duncan's babies).
    - Is there any other sidemount CCR available?
    - Does anybody used them in actual bail-out situation?
    - What are their practical limits (depth, WOB, size, etc) as a BOB (please, not another thread about scrubber temperature!! )?

    Cheers

    EDO08 is a prototype, I don't know if it's already available.
    EDO05 is designed to be mounted as a stage tank, but it is a passive SCR.

    I believe Reinhard Buchaly has a sidemount version of the RB80. The Meg also has sidemount versions. A lot of homebuilders use them, myself included.

    There are several D5 clones about or in progress. I wouldn't use mine as a bailout as it has no ADV.

    John Volanthen sidemounts a DecoRider - he has used it standalone and in conjuction with a YBOD.

    Rick Stanton has used his BotS to sub 100m and as bailout (to a KISS) for real. He's making some more.

    I'd like to see a sidemounted Meg. I understand that it uses only one counterlung. Most of the sidemount RB's I've come across are similar.

    Received parts of the TR-300 a few days ago. My plan was to convert it into a side-mount bail-out CCR unit.

    However, I will be gone to Sharm for 3 weeks so nothing will start until after June...

    I bought it sight-unseen thinking that it might be smaller (size of 7L stage) where as it is more an 80cf AL with the cover case on. Personally, I don't think the cover needs to be so big, so will try to reduce that at the same time so the completion date might be pushed...

    Correction it is a JOKI from Fred Badier.

    Hi Duncan,

    I discussed with Leon Scamahorn about the sidemount Meg but it was only a prototype with a modified T-piece for a different breathing hose routing. It looks like ISC has no sidemount version available for sale.

    Do you have any information about Rick Stanton's BotS? I never heard anything about it.

    Cheers
