I know I'm not the oldest diver (at age 56) on SB. I started diving SCUBA in the winter of 1961-62 although most of my early experience in the 60's was hard hat in fresh water. I've been diving salt water off and on since 1968 and did about 325 dives last year.
I'm just a pup at 41 and just got certified earlier this year and I can't get enough of it. I did some diving in The Marine corps 20 years ago but the Family and financial thing put a damper on that after my hitch was up
I'm 58. My wife and I have been certified for over 13 years and logged over 1,500 dives. We dive locally (So Cal) and take a couple of dive vacations a year. Four of our six adult children have C cards as does my sister, brother-in-law, and two nephews.
But, I've been diving since 1971, original cert through NAUI in '78. Did I mention that I'm a boyishly good looking 51? wink My daughter and son in law are in the process of getting their OW cert through the YMCA. Bob
