In preparation for the Santa Rosa Island trip I was able to get a tether management solution ordered as well as a topside controller box. The spool came unassembled. However, the instructions were very clear, and the assembly was basic. Me and Matthew Hershberger assembled the spool in short order.The more technical part of this assembly was attaching the new 770 connector to the original tether. For me this was an easy task.
The connections are exceptionally small but with proper preparation the task went smoothly.
