    Forgot to add ... my original plan was to secure the second tank into my other BCD and not have to fiddle with changing out tanks. But, my buddy convinced me that it's a good skill to get proficient at. In the end, I'm glad I didn't just as a matter of simplicity in the amount of gear brought with on the yak.

    My buddy had a sonar that he used. We navigated out via GPS coordinates that he stored, and used the sonar to find the wreck so that we anchored nearby and not right on it. I don't think his is as fancy as a sidescan though; that's legit!

    Are there currents where you dive?

    I have a large rear compartment I could easily fit a tank with my bp/w pony and extra gear etc. while I don’t have a front compartment I do have plenty of space to fit gear up there in the foot area since it’s plenty long even with my feet there. I could probably fit my second tank there with any other little odds and ends.

    Ive not dove out of kayaks but have used a canoe as a dive boat multiple times. Things fit easily but traveling with the weight of 2 adults and gear is slow going. We overloaded on one of my first attempts and we had to keep a hard lean to avoid waves swamping us :(.
    Looks like you’ve got a good thing going!
