Jim Scuba 1985

Me in 1985. I still have the same mask, snorkel, booties, and regulator! It was taken with an Instamatic that I built the housing for.

      Nice Jim, mine is also from 1985.

      Your regulator looks a lot like the one that I had just retired at about that time. I'm still using the Sherwood in my '85 picture though :) Same mask too.

      Hi Jim,
      My regulator was a Calypso J.
    • JamesBon92007
      Ah yes, mine was a Calypso and my "other" regulator was a Calypso J. The Sherwood out-breathes the Calypsos by about 3X but my Calypso is still in good condition and ready to dive with (last resort maybe, but ready). Heck, I'll use it. The Calypso J first stage is being used as an air supply for nail guns, blowers, paint sprayers, etc. It does not leak (had to replace the piston O-Ring). The second stage I take with me on trips in case someone requires me to have an Octopus. It will not free-flow.

      Those USD regulators were well built with the brass second stages which I prefer to the plastic used today. Wish I still had it!
