Hi
I would like to buy a Macromate for my Hugyfot flat port... :) But Hugyfot is not in their list.... So, I would like to know the measure of the outer circumference of the following flat ports:
-Subal
-Seacam
-Aquatica
-Sea&Sea

Maybe I can use one of the macromates offered for those brands... :)
Hugyfot's flat port external circumference is 37,5cm (14,57 inches)

BTW.- I already sent an e-mail to Basckscatter with no answer so far.
Thanks
Matetes
PS.- I've just got an answer... They say: there isn't any model for Hugyfot. I know, but I want to know if I can use any other model (making some DIY...)

What I mean is: could any proud owner of a Subal-Seacam-Aquatica or sea&Sea housing measure the outer circumference of his flat port and tell me the result?
Thanx
Matetes :)

The diameter of mine is 115 mm so the circumference should be 361 mm by my calc.

I have Sea & Sea's and Subal's on hand, they are:

Sea & Sea: 36.91cm
Subal: 35.97cm

I checked Light & Motion's as well but it tapers from 35.2cm to 35.7cm

If you don't get the answer elsewhere I can check the Aquatica port in a few days. Send me a PM.

According to my trusty tape measure, my Aquatica port measures 40 cm; and I LOVE my Macromate! :)

The Seacam Ports measure approx 376mm in circumference (could be a couple of mm either way).
