      Hello, In July 2013 you posted a chart on Poseidon Combos. It did not reproduce in any readable form. Would you please, if possible, send it to me in a pdf or spreadsheet form? Thank you for your assistance, Terry H.

    PADI, SSI
    Certification History:
    Just OW in 80's, then plastic cards started becoming important on dive boat trips. Stupid!
    Then discovered the joys of instruction once I started up the ladder. So much fun!
    Certification Level:
    Open Water Scuba Instructor
    # of Logged Dives:
    500 - 999
    Dive Classification:

    Ten Or More Years
    Dive Equipment:
    MK10's, Poseidon and Atomic 1sts. D-series 2nds, or a G-250, or Atomics, or either Poseidon style. Or an old Scubapro 109/156 when I need some chrome. Or anything that I can restore that breathes nicely.
    A MK10 with a DIY environmental seal is my standard rig when not using Atomic or Poseidon.
    Starting to restore my first double hose regs, and finally got a Kraken!!!
    Switched from jacket BCD to Freedom Plate for single tank. VDH wings are perfect fit.
    DUI drysuit for NorCal.
    USAF Flight Surgeon for 20+ yrs, with "vacations" to the usual desert places. USAF Hyperbaric Officer, briefly. UC San Francisco Anesthesia Faculty, then private practice.
    But scuba equipment repair and instruction are what make me smile. Now Open Water/Specialty instructor for local PADI and SSI shops.
    Manufacturer Service Technician Certs collected along the way for Aeris, Atomic, Apeks, Aqualung, Cressi, Genesis, Hollis, Oceanic, Poseidon, Scubapro (Level III expert tech cert, whatever that means), Sherwood, TUSA.
    Still restore Dacors and classic stuff.
    Yep, do Pilots too. PM me if you have an equipment question!
    Cheers!
