Thanks George! The units are out of production. Then again, with enough interest that could be put BACK into production. Fingers crossed on that one.

I copied some material from the Innerspace website about Aqueon performance below:




From: http://www.innerspacethrusters.com/Aqueon.htm


Note the plot including compressed air consumption from a 71.5 cft. tank (how many guys today have even used one of those?). We used to do lots of stupid stuff with single 72's. Anyway, take a look at the ratio of regular fins to Aqueon consumption at 1.5 kts. It works out to about 1.5 to 3.8 or roughly 40% LESS air consumption when moving at 1.5 kts.. That is significant to say the least. It would be interesting to see comparative stats. for free diving.

Cal calculated a propulsive power ratio of Aqueon to fins of 6.37 or over 6 times more effective.
