Hybrid_From_Hell Posted May 27, 2006 Share Posted May 27, 2006 Snorkels.....or more accurately snorkel "Tops" What is puzzling me is the fact many snorkels have a "Top" which has the opening pointing to the front of the LR. Ok, so when you go "a Wadin'" thats a long wasy off the ground ....but : What about when you are on the road, driving along in torrenal rain ? What about if you are off road and "Hit" water hard, the water will spray up and into the snorkel top, as above ? I know some snorkles have backward facing maybe for this reason, but on road then it could run weak as its then trying to suck air in prob in a vortex ? Bottom sucking snorkle tops (if that makes sense) is prob yet another compromise, a combo of minor vortex, and water will most probably be drawn in to a degree ? But particularly the forward facing issues ? Thoughts ? Nige Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
