      Jim, Can I ask you to send your BP/W guide. Like others requesting the same, I'm researching options and the associated pros/cons.
      Thanks Much, Tyler themmerich@gmail.com

      Hello, I'm hoping I could get my hands on your BP/W guide. Im a short amount of time from purchasing my first gear. No matter what I read up on I always come back around to HOG. Any info would be great appreciated, as I'm sure your very busy and I've noticed many people are requesting the same thing.
      I truly appreciate your time

      Jim, I am interested in getting my own gear. Heard you offer an article on Bpw sets ups would love to get a copy if you don’t mind. so far have mostly dive Great Lakes around WI and MI and occasionally on vacation in the Atlantic

      Jim, I was just looking at your info on TDI/SDI. I am trying to find a HOG service clinic so I can maintain my 4 D3s and 4 Zeniths myself, and not have to mail them out. I am in northern NY (on the St Lawrence Seaway), but you are the closest possible option I have been able to find. Is there any way we could coordinate a time for me to take a long road trip and get the training knocked out?

      Thank you,

      hello Jim:
      are you still going to Circleville tomorrow (JUNE 10)? If so let me know about what time and I will plan to be there. Looking forward for the dive
    7. ezadel
      hello my email is ezadelg1@gmail.com let me know if you would like to meet either tomorrow( Monday) or on the 10th of June weekend. I could really use someone of your experience as a buddy

      Mr. Jim
      Considering bp/w setups to replace two jacket style bc's.
      We are not completely green but have no aspirations of tech or overhead diving. We dive two freshwater lakes in Arkansas and have dreams to go to Bonaire, Roatan, etc.
      I tend to read and listen quite a bit and talk/type little. Appreciate the offer and the advice you and others offer here.
      Please send your article to: tnjgibson@yahoo.com

      Jim, I saw several posts of you offering an article about bp/w lift and selection to other memebers. I dive a 5mm suit and hp120 locally with 8 pounds and the same weight with a 3mm and al80 traveling. I'm thinking a 28lb wing w/ ss plate with no additional weight would work, I tend to overthink and over analize and feel like your artcile can only help me down the right path. Thanks.
