Hi Girls I have a couple of 12lt tanks taking up space in my outhouse as I now dive on twin 7s . I am thinking of making my single 12s into a twin set  so can get some more use out of them. I  looking to see how many other girls dive with twin 12s and how you get on with them ??

<font color='#000F22'>I'm sure she'll post later, but Blanaid dives with them and doesn't seem to have any problem.

<font color='#000080'>Give Louise Trewevas an email (from dive girl) she may take a few days to reply if she is busy but gave me loads of advice.  I have twin 10's and twin 12's, but it depends on season as to how i manage them.  I tend to use the 10's more as i breathe like a dead person and dont need the extra gas.  Just DONT try to swing them onto your back - your spine isnt sposed to make noises like that.  If you use a jacket with clips beware as some of them dont like the weight (as in the buddy ones).  Try to sit into them if you can, and get a trolley (yes it may not be macho but around st abbs harbour it is SOOO nice), i got mine from Lidl for £15, it even folds flat.

<font color='#810541'>Hi thanks for info I do use a trolly its wicked  I would not be without it makes the job alot easier . I think my next set will be 10s I had look at twinning my old single 12lt tanks but they are the very old ones and weigh much more then the newer ones.
thanks Fiona.

<font color='#000080'>Digger likes twin 6's. He has a Chest harness (but enough about his sexual preferences), No seriously he has a chest harness. He uses his suit for bouyancy and rigs the 6's like stage bottles. Very low resistance to the flow of the water around him, with the emphases on the ROUND part  
 (Sorry Digger). I'm not sure how his tight harnes interferes with his air flow in his drysuit though? I guess he's fine with it as he had no problems last weekend in Skye. And before you say anything I know hes a boy but he did mince around on the boat last weekend. (Digge will definately kill me now
).
