    Don’t be sad, before he talk to you, he never heard of Sea Hunt, now he has. Everyone has to start somewhere. :)

    Now he can watch many (if not most) of the episodes in YouTube.

    Or you can buy the full collection for less than $45.

    Amazon.com: Sea Hunt: The Complete Series Collector's Edition (Seasons 1, 2, 3 & 4) - 20 DVD Set: Lloyd Bridges, Jeff Bridges, Beau Bridges, Jack Nicholson, Ivan Tors, Leon Benson, John Florea, Herman Hoffman: Movies & TV


    IMHO, at that price, every diver should have a collection.It is just part of dive history and it is now kind of funny.

    BTW, For those who don’t remember or didn’t know. This is a black and white series. I would say it was a relatively low budget production and television shows at the time were less accurate that even the ones today. There are lots of editing errors and many of the topics are, let’s say not well researched or even corny.

    But it is how many of us got introduced to Scuba diving (Lung diving at the time) and probably the biggest influence in turning diving into the sport we know today.

    SEA HUNT , ıf marketed to Europe and other countries as J Y Cousteau series was known more in the world.
    There are still many divers havenn't been watching Sea Hunt in Europe.
    They did not even meet with VOIT .I have a few models in my collection and all episode DVD's. I'm enjoying watching.

    Year 1968 ..There was only 1 channel TV in my country black and white .. . Every saturday 18.30 pm we watched the J Y Cousteau serial as in all Europe same hour
    There was no scenario ,they did not engage in role , everything was real.People were going diver because he loved.
    When the movie begins one would not marching in the streets .. Cousteau still is our hero.He didnn't die.
    Calypso re will be the world oceans as soon as..
    Whereas Americans had taught marketing and showcase to world. But not marketed to Europe.
    Divers would meet VOIT We would also like SEA HUNT . I'm sorry to watch late. I say to our vintage divers Instead of watching free from YouTube ,buy all serial.

    Voit A6 Sea Hunt Fins Clean-Up
    - I found a seemingly New-In-Box pair of Voit Viking A6 Fins like Mike Nelson wore on Sea Hunt. They are hard to find with still usable rubber foot pockets, not to mention in my size Large 11-12. The seller said they still had the factory "Smuck" on them... Which I took to mean the original preservative.
    [​IMG]
    - The "Smuck" was more like a shellac that had yellowed. It was really hard to clean off. I tried Spic and Span, Dawn, Westley's Belche White tire cleaner, vinegar... Nothing made a dent in it. I thought of acetone or gasoline but those would dissolve the rubber, too.
    - Then I tried a squirt of WD-40 and rubbed with a white cloth. The yellow smuck colored the rag but no blue or black from the rubber. So, good old WD-40 cleaned these fins all up and revealed the deep dark blue and black rubber that looks, stretches, and wears like new.
    [​IMG]
    - These fins fit me perfectly and they're very comfortable.
    - All set for Sea Hunt Forever, Mar 19-20 at Silver Springs Florida!
