Steve, Eline and I had a chance to stop by Poseidon Diving Systems today in Göteborg. Jörgen Nilsson took us on a tour of their facility, which included meeting the design manager for the new Poseidon/Cis-Lunar Mk 6 Discovery rebreather. We were also incredibly fortunate enough to take a prototype of the unit for a quick dive in the pool. Although none of us had dove a rebreather before, we were all very impressed with the size, simplicity and safety features in the Discovery's design. I can't post any pictures of out experience on the web, but the units begin to ship in September, so keep your eyes open! And if anyone feels like giving me a €5,000 (VAT included) christmas present, a new Discovery would be great!
