FastBottoms,
There was a 1020 on my boat when I bought it. i used it once or twice, but found it easier to use a tank and reg. The hose looks like standard compressor hose. Are you concerned about mold in the hose?

I am not concerned about mold in my air hose. I have used the same hose assembly for about 10 years and have never had an issue with odors or tastes.

BTW, if you are unsure about the hose you have; don't use it.

Fast Bottoms,
This may be a dumb question, but is there ever an issue with stray electric currents around the docks?

Stray currents are real especially in fresh water. Brackish is bad too. As far as I know stray currents usually are not a problem in pure salt water as it is a good conducter. A friend died while swimming near a boat dock in freshwater. He was an excellent swimmer. He just stopped swimming and sank out of sight. His wife was watching and thought at first that he was just playing around. By the time she realised that something was wrong it was too late.

I've been doing bottom cleaning for 15 years and I've never had any problems nor do I know anyone who has. That being said; I unplug every boat I dive.
