    Bait tank plumbing?

    Can I put my tank overflow underneath the boat on a through hull? 3/4" strainer pickup and 1 1/4" strainer overflow (facing aft) Does this make sense or did I start drinking too early?

    Freediving fins vs scuba fins

    Most spearos start out with scuba fins just due to having them on hand probably. I know that was my reason. The long blade on a freedive fin will require you to kick less which will conserve your oxygen. If you're just starting out don't worry about it though. Be safe and have fun.
