Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

He left the primary stage attached to his tank, which stayed on deck while the secondary stage was attached to the mouthpiece by a hose long enough that he work on his keel or whatever. He said that this arrangement allowed him to get in the water much quicker than with tank he wore or setting up a hookah? Comments?
It's a good idea. He didn't really do anything more than add a longer hose between the first and second stage regulators. They are naturally separate.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
