    Dive Equipment:
    I used a Poseidon Cyklon 300, and a Dacor 400, both set up w/ Octopus rigs, & auto inflator hoses, & pressure gauge/Farallon 300' depth/ gauge console.
    I'm a retired diver, you might say. I was certified in Arlington Hts., IL in 1969, at a local high school. The instructor was the football coach, a retired Navy Seal, who at that time was able to get certification to teach a PADI class through the mail! I went on to receive training at at Ed Brawley's PDIC Instructors College in Monterey, CA, this was in 1974. He was an innovator of the Open Water Classroom method of teaching Scuba. His grads were awarded a PADI certification, and I still have my original c-card! I taught classes for two years in the Tampa/St Petersburg area, where I Divemastered two trips to Cayman Brac off Grand Cayman Island. I then moved to Miami where I worked for eight years at the New England Divers main shop in Miami, doing beach dive classes from Miami Beach, & Hollywood Beach. Our deep cert dive classes were in the Keys, off Islamorada. We took trips to Andros Is. in the Bahamas, where we did deep decompression wall dives in the Tongue of the Ocean, and shot Grouper in the shallows. I found a 16th century rum bottle in the sand on one of those dives. I got fairly proficient with a Nikonos II camera with a small flash/housing assembly, though haven't used it recently and plan to have it overhauled with a new o-ring set.
