    From your last thread, this seems to be a new suit.

    It's been to the manufacturer twice (who have been doing repairs) and the dive shop 4 times. You still claim it's leaking... It's faulty.

    Just been through and done a dummy order. A Seaskin Nova with a couple of basic features (2x pockets & the ridiculous 40 extra you have to pay for them to actually make the suit telescopic) 612

    The cylinders are wide spaced which means the manifold is the same as you'll find on a standard 12L twinset (171mm I believe). That's good as they're pretty common.

    My first suit was a Seaskin. Went through a zip every 12 months on average. Charged me every time despite it being clear that it was due to the cut of the suit putting strain on the zip. That was bad...

    They can. Not all can be replaced in 5 minutes on the back of a boat though. Dry glove systems allow for the wrist seals to do the same.

    It's annoying, but I get super excited waiting for parcels and I know how dissapointing it is when they turn up wrong / damaged.

    You're talking about an SDI course rather than a TDI branded one. So it figures that at least some people doing it will have none of the skills that you've...

    Makes no difference really. Taking it off and replacing the blanking plug takes 30 second with a spanner and allen key so I'd probably do that to save having an extra hose to fix somewhere.

    Diving is tiring. Long days. Cold. Moving heavy things around. So that's always going to be a factor.
