Re: Dive Compressor on a SM
Do it – it’s only money.
We have one. It’s not hard to maintain and I can fill a tank to 3200psi in about 20 mins.
Think about all the many locations in French Polynesia where you can’t get tanks filled. Having the compressor opens up a whole new world for sailors who dive.
Opps! Sorry. You wanted reasons not to do it. Can’t think of any other than you might miss the storage space and your boat will list more to port than it does now.
With best regards,

OK- I have hull #422 (a red line) and each day I wistfully
look at that un-used dive compressor breaker on the 220 volt panel and feel
like it's talking to me. My wife and I are enthusiastic divers heading
(hopefully) back to Polynesia where diving would be fun and not always close to
a dive shop.
