What’s The Difference Between A Lift Bag and a DSMB? Quick tips are back! Number 32. We are looking at the differences and similarities between Lift Bags and SMBS or DSMBs. Which should you buy? What are they used for? How do you dive with each?
This is a viewer-requested video. Let me know in the comments what other Quick Tips videos we should make.
DSMBs or delayed surface marker buoys differ from SMBs (Surface Marker Buoys) in that they are designed to be deployed from depth whilst scuba diving. SMBs are only meant to be inflated on the surface. Both are designed to mark your position and alert boats to your presence.
These differ from Lift Bags which are designed to raise inanimate objects that have sank. River treasure, lost cars, lead weights all can be brought to the surface with a lift bag. In the James Bond film Casino Royale, you even see a Venice building being held afloat by a series of lift bags!
Thanks as always for watching!
