    Dive History:
    My father taught me to dive in 1967 using all of his gear from the 1950's so I was brought up with just a steel 72, harness, J-valve and no BC (and taught the only reason to dive was to hunt game - killed me lots of lobster, abalone, halibut and rock scallops over the years). Sold dive travel in the late 70's, early 80's. Taught NAUI Advanced classes as my friend Sam Miller, III's assistant for five years. Became a NAUI Instructor. Sam introduced me to everybody who was anybody, or at least thought they were. Met JYC a few times. Dove many places in the world. Still love a 30 ft beach dive in the kelp off So. Cal. I have rebuilt a number of Voit, USD and HW double hose regs. I have been a diving cast member in several SEA HUNT FOREVER shows in Silver Springs, Florida where they filmed over half of the Sea Hunt episodes from 1958 to 1961. Anyway, enough about me. Hope to be able to jump in and contribute on subjects I at least think I know something about.
