    Can none of you that are selling these units comment on Price or the unit or training? What does it come with? Is it ready to dive out of the box or do you have to buy tanks or regs? Can you attach your own computer to it like a Shearwater or Liquivision to monitor PO2?

    What I am interested in knowing about the training is how many days classroom? How many days in water time? How much it costs?

    Thanks
    Phil

    Hi, just seen this thread - happy to give info.

    The Poseidon MK6 retails at $6,844 and includes a really cool pelican case. It is shipped with everything you need including 02 sensors, battery and charger. You need to purchase tanks, it comes with Poseidon 1st stages of course!

    At this time, you cannot hard wire a Shearwater, but you can of course run one as a stand alone unit. With air diluent and no-deco dives, its not really neccessary.

    The only additional purchase is a BC/harness if you do not already own one that is suitable.

    The training we provide is through IANTD and costs $750. It lasts 3 - 4 days with a minimum of 4 dives totalling more than 300 minutes, a confined water session and as much class as we need. It covers every aspect of the unit specifics, diving a recreational rebreather up to a PP02 of 1.2 to 70' and general CCR knowledge.

    We also offer rebreather try dives so you can compare the unit to the Megalodon, rEvo and Titan in the pool should you wish.

    Call me on (305) 395-1194 if you want to talk about rebreathers!

    Cheers

    Thanks Chris. I guess none of the others on here that said they would sell one are actually geared up and ready to go on the unit.

    Personally I do not think that the unit would be for me, but for some of my friends or wife that my want to go to CCR when ever I make the switch.

    I appreciate you taking the time....
