Re: 15.5' Inflatable Dive Boat, $5500

Interesting and what would your max unloaded speed be with that? 26 to 28 mph over ground. I prefer at least a few tanks or some weight in the boat, to keep on the water, it's scary light in the front unloaded, but the hull design prefers midship balanced weighting. Unweighted the catamaran design ...

Re: 15.5' Inflatable Dive Boat, $5500

They duo props should have slip bushings just like a regular outboard. In case of a log or rope They do, but the props are a thousand bucks in Stainless Steel for duo props and the current ones work great and hit all of the right RPMs loaded down with a week of gear so they are very low on the proj...

Re: 15.5' Inflatable Dive Boat, $5500

Honda engines use Solas props. I'll have to go check the specs for the exact numbers, but I went down 1 pitch angle to match the aluminum prop that was on there. It's propped so that a medium to full load it hits the mid to upper range of the factory recommended upper rpm range. Lightly loaded it hi...

15.5' Inflatable Dive Boat, $5500

Our dive boat is up for sale. For less than a nice scooter, you can be diving everything in the sound vs the same old shore diving scene. Tow-able behind a Subaru Forester or Outback so you don't have to upgrade your dive rig! We've used this boat from Anacortes to Stuart Island runs, to all over th...

Re: Faber tanks?

Check the tanks when you get them. My wife ordered some awhile back, and they shipped from 2 locations, one they sent the correct fx tank, the other tank sent the heavy mid pressure hp100. They exchanged and ate the shipping. But that tanks first use was a loaner, and yeah, the person that borrowed ...

Halcyon manifold plugs?

Does anyone have any laying around, know someone that wants to sell a set? I need to split a set of tanks to a L/R post. Or if you know if the DR generic plugs will actually work with the manifold. Tac. Scuba wasn't sure, and neither were most people I talked to.

Re: Deception Pass

It's not a heavily dived site by most people.

So yes the majority of the 70 people that saw the post aren't diving it, which does...

It all started with recreational gear, then some gear was stolen while deployed. Recollected more recreational gear years later. Didn't like a few pieces of gear, then had to replace a lot of gear when I got into tech diving. And Tech diving is what I refer to as the "Rabbit Hole". If you ...

Last minute dive anyone?

Due to a last minute cancellation, I'm without a buddy today. I'm futzing with my sidemount rig in the sound for it's initial dive in saltwater. A buddy that can operate a cam band would be nice, and can do a long dive. Redondo, Three tree, or cove 2 works.
Pm me, and I'll send you my phone number.
