I still have a rough scratchy itchy throat from it months later. So no events for me until they have a cure.
    Steve,

    Glad to hear you are doing OK! You having gone through this Virus, I totally understand why you must take care! This might sound crazy to some! My wife and I have not been out of our home for anything since April! This COVID-19 is nothing to mess with for sure!! Take care of yourselves! CURE!!!??? This could be the new norm!!

    A big industrial cut-off wheel. I fine-tune the edges on a belt-sander outfitted with a perpendicular guide fixture.

    No, just to shorten the ballast tank discharge time. As configured in the pictures things are plumbed in the snort mode. Parallel a safety float-valve in the induction side of the plumbing, and add a snorkel, and it'll be in the SAS mode. Eazy Piezy.

    You trouble-makers coming to the big SubFest, or not?

    (note to self: What was I thinking?!!!... must notify homeland security, the Justice League, the Avengers, and ICE to deal with Canadian's before they bust through our northern boarder).

    Over time the silicon grease used to lubricate the O-rings acts like glue, making cylinder removal a problem. However, if you heat the Lexan cylinder over the O-rings, the union between cylinder and O-rings is easily slide apart.
