Maybe it's just me, but I would always fight with the battery tangs to either get the battery in or out. I always kept the sealing O ring lubricated also.


They have a fitness requirement in the army, you'd think they'd have one in the navy too? :boxer:


If I had to guess I would attribute it to drunken sailor syndrome. As far I as I know the Army is only drunk in Germany, Korea, Ft. Bliss, Ft. Lenordwood..... Oh never mind.

Original prop is on the scooter.... duhhhhh :neener:

X prop is stored nicely with all my other gear. It didn't seem to make any difference at all on the Sierra. I might have to test it on the Magnus one day...

Your Commission is all the diving you want to do once you come back down again!

Woohoo! Nice purchase, Austin!

By the way, who left the door open for that defied guy to sneak back in??

This is how i feel right now [youtube] http://youtu.be/PxYQQoYfMtQ[/youtube]

:calvin: :calvin: :calvin: :supz:

So I'm thinking that I've never had to get the weighting right, trim right all etc, on one of these before, and maybe a sitdown conversation with someone about some proper maintenance once I get home with someone would be awesome.

Obviously it wont' be here this weekend, but I'm hoping maybe by the weekend of the 11th, and 12th. Any good scooter mentors want to go hit a dive site that weekend, prefereably somewhere where we can be on the trigger for a while, without risking to much of a swim, and give the batteries some burn test. I was thinking somewhere like Sund Rock or Ruston Way Water front. DIW if the currents aren't too bad.

Or if you don't mind risking towing me one last time we could do ALKI fishing reef.

Let's do it! We're going to be up at Joe's and April's the evening of the 11th. Maybe make it a group scooter that day?

Where abouts are Joe and April living these days I heard they bought a house, but haven't heard from them since.

I would love to do something like that and see those guys, dive, SCOOTER, and if possible squeeze in a lil' SCOOTERING!

Do they live near a good site for that (MUK Dock?)

I ended up buying Chad's backup battery as well so it should come stocked.

UPS tracking says it's in REDMOND WA, but who's keeping tracking any who? Needless to say I'm a little excited.

Okay, but if you feel a wet finger somewhere, don't flinch, and trust me.
