I'm doing a Research Paper for college on the subject of the invention of Cousteau's Aqua Lung regulator and how the resurgence of the double hose regulator is due to the release of eBay and owners, owners relatives, divers, retired divers, etc. dragging these out of their attics or basements and selling them or restoring them and using them again.

So, I'd like to gather some statistics for my paper...

I would love to dive vintage all the time, because that would mean that I am now independently wealthy, and do not have to dive for a living. However diving 6 days a week , leaves me too little free time, as it is now 4 dives a day, its about enough. I seem to sleep on my off day. Vintage diving for now is a special occasion thing.

Since I don't know anybody in my aera who dives vintage, and all the divers I dive with now are trained on Octopus, I only get to use my double hose when I'm solo, and in shallow water. ( Oh No!, he confessed to diving alone!)
