Got a couple of questions for you RB users if you would be so kind..

1) How much time do you spend in kit preperation before a dive ?

2) How much time do you spend cleaning it after a dive ?

3) Do any of you take your RB's on small ribs, if so have you had any problems with all the bouncin around damageing or dislodgeing your stuff.

Cheers.

I prepare mine the night before and it takes about 30 mins including the cleaning of the counterlungs. Re-assembly next morning takes no more than 5 minutes with the negative pressure test in place I drive to the site or have my breakfast if on a liveaboard.
I have dived CCR from a RIB once. No problems with bouncing. Rather heavy to lift back in though made more difficult in that I wear my weights in the case. I seem to recall it was no more difficult than lifting 2X12l steels into a RIB and certainly less humping about to get re-fills afterwards!
