This is the place to show everyone what you got.

Double hose regs, WWII aviation O2 bottles converted to triple tanks, MK IV hard hats, we want to see it.

My old man still has a pair of those UDT duck fins. They are so stiff that they are MURDER on your calves if you're not used to them. They do however give you some great speed once you've built up the muscles to use them.

Got to admit, this is cool and I never thought of it before. Now I want to research WWII scuba training.

Download a copy of the Navy Dive manual.

The 19th century underwater reference work is harder to find. It's outside of the frog man sphere. However, ship's husbandry was required.

I have a few "old school styled" analog dive watches... I prefer them to the newfangled dive computers.

They certainly are nice!! Although my first dive watch, a Casio G-Shock from 1991, practically qualifies as vintage gear by now, and is only on its third battery.

I have a pretty high end system downstairs in a dedicated listening room, but wanted something in the living room for entertainment, without spending a lot of money. I decided to get some vintage 70's Hi Fi gear as it would also go with my Mid Century Modern décor:

I also have a vintage Nikon F2 and a bunch of lenses and motor drive:

Audio flotsam takes up more space than dive flotsam in my space.

Go check out the flea market at the Slater Mill near Preston. A nice 60's Sansui would be sweet in the MCM living room.
