What did I just see?

Poor Scott (our Divemaster in training) had to put up with us two as his students for the workshop. Haven’t laughed so much in ages:)) Not sure he’ll let us role play as students again!

We certainly had fun:) lots of distraction techniques, one hyper cocky diver and a super nervous diver. Lots of obvious things to spot and correct for giggles but lots of less obvious, more hidden things to challenge a little more. But very impressed with Scott and they way he handled the session. He also really took charge of all the surface logistics for Saturdays real student open water dives and did an awesome job:))

Can I play spot the problem? 😂 Can’t pick your nose with a mask on 😝

Predator custom dry suits based in New Milton - it’s that time of year when you might be jetting off for some winter sun, so what better time to get those repairs/seals replaced or a full service done. Dennis is incredibly knowledgeable and happy to offer advice. Also go and have a chat with Dennis about his lovely custom made drysuits;)) https://predator-drysuits.uk/I am frequently asked for advice regarding drysuit build and extras which I am happy to give to anyone and consider I am in a position to answer most questions and thought I would add them here Here are a few insights from my experience and perspective regarding Neck Seal Replacement Systems from Sitech which we regularly install at Predator and may help you when choosing a new drysuit or upgrading your current drysuit Sitech have come a long way regarding flexibility of their neck systems as shown in picture 1 with the new ‘Orust’ system being really quite flexible and the early “Neck Tite” being quite stiff in comparison as shown in picture 1 There is an important aspect that arises with the “Neck Tite” & “Quick Neck” systems which I wish to address When installed, all of the neck systems I talk about here deform over the shoulder curve. This is a good thing! However, the inner seal retaining ring (yellow or orange), also deforms to this shape and has in my experience, albeit infrequently, dislodged itself through a dive, either through the range of body movement or configuration of kit and has not been noticed as in picture 3, whereas in picture 2 it is correctly installed and importantly should be reinstalled as it came out when replacing a broken neck seal The “Orust” system has, as you can see in picture 4, 12 clips that hold the inner seal retaining ring in place, although it takes a little longer and is fiddly to do (they supply 2 spare clips) it helps the deforming issue of the seal retaining ring This is a good thing! But, I also see a potential issue with the clips wearing on the inside of the seal as in picture 5 Therefore, if you are using, or going to be using a neck seal system. my first recommendation is to check the installation of the seal retaining ring including the clips& seal if you have the Orust system as part of every pre dive check My second recommendation is that a neoprene neck seal is installed into your drysuit instead of a neck seal replacement system for any extreme diving ie: cave, cavern, deep wreck etc, I have a strong view about this! Neoprene neck seals largely do not catastrophically fail, they give you fair warning on wear and tear and still should be part of every pre dive check and should only be replaced by professional repair establishments, there is a right way and a wrong way! Ladies generally have a narrower shoulder then men and consideration should be given on the overall wearing of a system but we have fitted our female customers successfully although this has been subject to my recommendation! Lastly, if you do have a system installed and do not have a spare silicone or latex, system specific seal shape, a standard latex bellows seal can be successfully used with no problem other than they are slightly harder to install into the groove and you should leave about 12mm of flange beyond the seal retaining ring as in picture 6 Neck seal replacement systems are great, just ensure correct checks and application! I trust this enlightens you on the use of these systems! Dive safe my friends, Dennis. ... See MoreSee Less
