For many, many years I've been meaning to get dive certified. But like so many other things it got pushed back and the next you know I'm 62 wishing I'd done it 30 years ago.
With a planned trip to Kona I thought what a great place to do the open water portion of the course. So I finally got off...
I have an ethernet connection out in my shop for internet service.
Brand new computer does not have an ethernet port.

Or would a wifi range extender work better? $$
I'm thinking the hard wire is a better solution?
Just looking at boats I came across the X-412 and thought the mainsheet configuration a bit odd. Did some more looking and it appears to be common on their boats.
