    You train fin pivots, you get fin pivots.

    I can't believe you are looking at the backplate.

    I'm looking at the reg second stage instead. I've seen a couple of photos with straps like this for securing the reg to the head, but was this something a regular diver would use?

    I didn’t notice she was wearing a snug pack.... I have one on my steel 72. It does have the quick release and a nice little guide for the J-valve reserve. The handle is really handy.

    I loved the subs on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, especially the mini subs. Barbara Eden was in the movie version and Barbara Bouchet is the woman being helped into the Snug-pack. As far as I can tell, Eden spent the entire movie dry and wearing a version of Navy khakis. For the 1960s fantasy show, it was seriously lacking in the expected misogyny that could be enjoyed on the Wild, Wild West, Man from UNCLE and Sea Hunt. In that respect, a let down.
