Re: Towing a Freediver - Techniques?

As I mentioned before, I just clipped my speargun off to my weight belt, with coiled cord, which leaves my two hands free. We always used smaller boats. It's damned sure easier when towing to the keys. It also makes it easier to signal the driver when towing. The towee can signal via adding/loosening drag on the boat. See something? Drag/tug/let go...driver knows somethings up, looks back, circles.
Getting dragged too fast? Whistle at driver and use hand signals to indicated wanted speed. Us troglodytes seemed to figure this out with success.
“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
