found this on an "un-named" mail order scuba site while looking for lift bags.



Lifts up to 12000 pounds
Excellent for sport divers
Suitable for many types of underwater lifting and light salvage
Diver-actuated dump valves
Open bottom vents expanding air as it ascends
Economical and lightweight
Folds into neat, compact roll for easy handling underwater.


now maybe it's just me, but 12,000lbs for "Sport Divers" and "Light" salvage? I like Carter bags and all but a 12,000lb bag is NOT Econimical and Lightweight.

maybe some of you will find the humor in this - I laughed pretty hard. every open water diver needs a 12,000lb bag...

Willer :D

Could be a Typo. Wouldn't be the first time in advertising. I know, I've made them. (Not often!):eek: Maybe it should read 1200lbs?
