Nautilus Lifeline – Flood Protection

Flooding a camera, or any electronic equipment on a dive sucks (I’ve not better way to put that). Sadly I flooded my Nautilus Lifeline (NL) on a deep dive a while back, which appears to be caused by the latch being popped open underwater.

I’ve taken to a more risk managed approach with my replacement, as I saw this done on the MV Spoilsport units. One modification is to use a loop of bungee (shock cord) around the body of the unit. It prevents the latch being opened accidentally, and therefore saves a flood. Simple, but effective…
