    Looking forward to when the Signatures come back in stock, ideally in both colors. I've been given the Go by my financial advisor / dive buddy / wife that the last piece of my kit - the regs - will be my bday gift this coming spring. Heavily leaning towards Deep6 for a variety of reasons...just hope to be able to do so before next dive a few months out. :)

    I have put some Orange Second Stages back in stock, as we still have some. We also have Blue Second stages as well at the moment. Black is the only second stage color currently out of stock.

    The demand for your regulators are so high because Deep6 produces a awesome product. I just purchased the Signature sidemount reg. package and absolutely love them, plus including free service kits is awesome..

    Have you considered angel investors or similar to help alleviate the issue of not having the cash flow to maintain stock? Demand seems to be there, so if the business is otherwise well run, I can't imagine it would be that hard to find someone willing to infuse some cash into the business for terms that would be amenable to all.

    It’s the slow (container) boat from China problem.

    I don't know how Deep6's stuff is routed, but there is a huge cluster in LA/LGB and at many of the rail ramps around the country right now. But given he's in Georgia, a routing over Savannah would make the most sense, and there's not that much congestion in Savannah right now.

    takes an extra 2-3 weeks to get to Sav. and the port is SLOW clearing, adds a month over west sea to rail to ATL

    Currently it’s taking 1-2 weeks to get stuff on the rail in LA/LGB. My stuff going SAV to ATL via rail is getting on the train in a day or two after discharge. My ATL customer has had repeated issues for years over the west coast so it’s all water via SAV now.

    Are you getting full containers or LCL shipments?

    I can't imagine they're getting full containers. I could see filling a 20, but a 40 or a high cube would be a TON of inventory.

    I'm glad all I have to deal with are the carnet's and let Rock-It do the rest. I couldn't imagine having to deal with actually importing goods.
