U.S. NAVY DIVE MANUAL

20-11

SS521 AG-PRO-010

1999

 

 

This Mac and PC compatible CD started out as another no-frills plain-jacket US NAVY DIVE MANUAL knock-off. The US NAVY DIVE MANUAL is one of the essential references for the hard-core diver, and fascinating reading for everyone else. Air, mixed gas, rebreathers, chamber operations, dive medicine, nitrox, helium and decompression tables? It's all there, in five different volumes.

Like most U.S. Government publications, the manual is not copyrighted (since we taxpayers already paid for them, in a sense) so anyone is free to run off as many copies as they please. Quite a cottage industry seems to have sprung up, in duplicating the manual and selling copies on ebay.

However, the Navy Manual doesn't take up a whole CD, so we've been adding other stuff as we come upon it, to make it more useful to the sort of people who buy our books. We've put on some NASA and Navy papers on O2 safety, info on hyper filtration from Lawrence Factor, spec sheets on HID bulbs and ballasts, and a lot of other neat stuff we don't want to mention here, in case we're not supposed to be giving it away. There's even the official DOT list of approved hydro stations - very handy for finding a shop that can + rate your steels.

This is just a start - if we get enough stuff we'll be eventually renaming it THE BIG AIRSPEED PRESS CD OF FUN or something.

Sucker price for the US NAVY DIVE MANUAL is about $180 in print or $50 on CD rom. Ours is $10, if ordered along with a book (it's too much trouble to ship them alone). Since they don't weigh much, they get to ride along for free - no extra postage, anywhere in the world.

This is just a trial offer, so we haven't added a line on our order form for it. If you want a copy just say so in the Special Instructions dialogue box at the bottom of the order form.

WARNING: This is a cheap Mac and PC-compatible CD containing files from many different sources. We cannot guarantee that all files will open on all computers. For this reason, this CD is sold "As Is" and is not returnable though we will of course replace blantantly defective disks.
