    Raucous, the pvc pipes work really well, I leave them tied,...the 3 bungies , one for each boot are tied at the top, I pulled that up to a homemade hook, hanger wire etc. very easy to slip on and off. I had an 18 inch set and a 36 inch set used to shoot mangrove roots in salt water tide in and is salt marsh, tide out...an on going project, when I get back around to it. Good luck

    My intimate knowledge of carbon fiber tripods is limited to a "Dynatran" I got from Amvona via ePrey, but its fittings below the head level appear to be all non-metallic materials. I would think that might be a significant advantage in saltwater use. I have no idea whether any of the big name CF units are similar. This one is rated for 17 pounds and I got it for $66 (without a head), so you'll hear no complaints from me.

    Surely Terence has the right idea. Buy a cheap one and throw it away and buy a new when the salt causes a problem;

    I do a fair amount of shooting near the beach, and I have been using two layers of plastic bags, and even still I wash the heck out of the tripod when I am finished. Safer that way. Good Luck
