I placed this video into the Nautilus CVS thread in the General Diving forum area, but it will get lost there. Therefore, I'm creating a separate thread for this video.
The Dacor Nautilus Constant Volume System is a unique diving system. This video records my dive with this system in the Clackamas River at High Rocks, near Portland, Oregon. Because this vintage diving unit is no longer available, this is a training video on how to use the unit, as well as a record of this dive, which occurred on March 30, 2015.
John C. Ratliff Diving since 1959, at age 13. Haven't stopped, and still enjoy getting wet.
- Thank you for sharing one of your river dives John. I've been wondering what that would be like from reading some of your posts about it. Probably not very attractive to the Caribbean luxury divers we always see pictures of. But I can identify somewhat. Except for the current, conditions in my lake diving are quite similar in the low visibility and dull scenery. Sometimes I get 15-20 ft visibility but most of the time I'm lucky to get 5 feet. I still enjoy it and just move slower and get closer to see things. - Dealing with the current has to have been an education and adventure for you.
