She sure makes her gear look light.

Maybe less than 20 lbs… sure like her choice of carry on. :) Nowadays we have to remove the valves before we fly.

I’m thinking the tank is made out of papier-mâché.
Mike Nelson’s tanks for on the boat shots were made from balsa wood. I was watch an old movie clip a few months ago and they had the worst looking tank mock-ups for the shots.

I will give her credit she is not bent over to support the tank. I suppose she only has the one strap over her shoulder. Where is this from?

It is from back in the days when a proper lady wouldn’t be caught dead without her pearls and you were allowed to wear gloves on the reef…
