    I did the IFC, OWIC & PIE like this and passed. I made no modifications to my GUE/DIR single tank kit at all, just bent the primary hose into a U shape and stuck it in the right shoulder D-ring as an...

    For your use case, just get dropbox. I think the free version is 2gb, but the entry level paid version is 2,000gb. Other options available too.

    For a proper NAS, look at Synology. The 'j' series,...

    There’s a boring answer to this too. Don’t put any stages on the right.

    Assuming a standard setup, I reckon it's the ends of the jubilee clips on the light can.

    This looks very impressive Simon. The £8/10k cost doesn't seem unreasonable in the scheme of survey gadgets. Obviously less accurate given the constraints of the wobbly sea, but similar cost to a...
