  1. rongoodman liked seeker242's post in the thread Computer: Right/Left.

    Always on the right and all of the above is irrelevant when ascending in a horizontal position, using the butt dump. :)

    They're available at LiesurePro and Amazon too. I got a pair and sent them back. They have a coating that makes them very stiff and...

    Except you're not using a pair of scissors. You're pushing a button that responds identically to either hand. Or a stick. It doesn't...

    Wise choice. I take it he isn't a fan of horizontal ascents?

    Replace the right side weight pocket with one of these: Extreme Exposure. halcyon-cinch-system-accessories-bellows-pocket.571697

  6. rongoodman liked wedivebc's post in the thread TDI Advanced Nitrox / Decompression.

    That sentence alone tells me that you should get training.

  7. rongoodman liked Griffo's post in the thread Computer: Right/Left.

    Keep it on your right and find a new instructor. Your rationale about keeping it visible during ascents makes far more sense than that...

  8. rongoodman liked Soggy's post in the thread Primary Regulator with a Necklace?.

    No, it's not a questionable backup. It is under your neck, attached to you, close to your body where it cannot be dislodged or collect...

    Put your secondary on the necklace so it will be right where you can find it if you need it. If someone comes to you for gas, give them...

  10. rongoodman replied to the thread do transmitters fail?.

    Tests show that a burst HP hose takes over 20 minutes to empty an Al80. Hardly an emergency, just end the dive. Failure of an LP hose is...

    What would a rec only version give you that the current rec mode doesn't? It's hard to see why it would be significantly cheaper to...

  12. rongoodman replied to the thread Do you download your dive computer data?.

    Usually after I'm home from the trip whenever I think about it. Bluetooth and the Shearwater Cloud make it straightforward.

    There are some with a "central" inflator position which I imagine can be rotated. But seriously.. a person with less than 20 dives...

  14. rongoodman replied to the thread How much extra neoprene for repetitive dives on liveaboard?.

    There won't be any RIB rides off the liveaboards at Turks and Caicos. Taking multiple 5mm suits doesn't seem doable anyway.

    I'd suggest you research Dive Aventuras in the Riviera Maya community of Puerto Aventuras. The dive shop is located inside the Omni...
