Laugh or cry? x
Are they twin 7s?
looks genuine probs good for stuck prop etc on a boat
What could possibly go wrong!
Phil. Phil. Oh you don't do 300 bar? What do you mean you can only do 200?
Better off with a Piss Off Not Yours?
Hah, the best bit is he's selling the same minus bag and belt for £299.
So that's £80 for a £10 bag and a £10 belt
I saw that too, does he sleep at night much do you think? x
Like a baby I suspect - No shame there!
Yeh I kind of expected so. There are lots of people that seem to have bought them though x
You need to site your criticism
just because it's a different use to what you are used to
Its leading people to believe that they can buy a toy and go diving. A 300 bar 2 litre cylinder becomes a 230 bar at best cylinder when there is no 300 bar compressor. Its beyond what most people would consider sensible for a pony too.... strap this on a pretend you are a scuba diver.
Its stupid, stupid , stupid and stupid. x
Its fucking madness. If you are a diver do it properly. If you aren't get someone who is to do it for you. x
Thats elitist crap, there is cause to be underwater that is mega depths or what you'd probably even call diving
Problem with cutting a line of a prop is that it can take quite some time if you're hacking away with a knife. The other sailing issue is freeing an anchor which would tend to be in 5 metres.
Both of these activities would have one chugging air at an alarming rate.
With only 400 litres available - 200 bar is more common than 230 in the med - you've not got long. And with no gauge, no reserve, what could possibly go wrong...?
I fear for the half-empty cylinder user where the owner hasn't re-filled it.
They need an audible alert for low pressure. Beeps a bit like reversing beepers.
I did a search and recovery job once for an anchor that was in a defined place within two buoys about
10m apart in 6m of sility mud. It took almost all of a full 12lt to find it and by the time we did and got
the chain up, we were sucking fumes.
Lol, really? Find me a major agency that would be happy to teach you on that rig and condone marketing it as a toy? x
Edit: Its quite alarming that you don't see the issue tbh x
It is surprising that the internet seems full of stuff that is dangerous, illegal or both - you would think that the Health and Safety Police would step in.. But then, people seeking to win a Darwin Award have to buy their kit from somewhere!
Quite, but it sure does seem like the person advertising that stuff should know better. To be honest jumping off a boat in proper full scuba gear to do any kind of task isn't something that should be taken lightly even by those fully trained. x
Especially around a potentially live propeller.
I've a couple of jobs to do on a sailing boat which would easily be done in the water with my diving kit - replacing a couple of anodes. This would save me the £300 lift-out charge.
Trouble is they don't like people diving in the marina. Or at least I assume they don't - I've not, and won't, ask them as it's always easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission. I guess they might notice if someone was walking along the pontoon wearing twin 12's and carrying fins.
