Re: Cleaning Hull in the water

Yup, it get the contaminated air issues. I was a dive instructor many years ago, from air to mixed gas to re-breathers.

I would love to know from FastB where one finds the parts. I'm sure I could source the hoses and regulators, but the compressor is the key. For very shallow depth, it would not need to be very powerful. You can suck through a plain hose for a few feet below the surface.

I'm starting to envision building one in a large plastic tool box that I would secure to the side deck and just drop a hose over the side.
