    It may actually be light.... I have a pair of old USD 1800 psi 53s for my son, they are just a hair shorter than an old school 72 but weigh just over half as much.

    It does hurt me inside a bit to see her smash the hose loop between the tank and her back.....

    I’m thinking the tank is made out of papier-mâché.

    Mike Nelson’s tanks for on the boat shots were made from balsa wood. I was watch an old movie clip a few months ago and they had the worst looking tank mock-ups for the shots.

    I will give her credit she is not bent over to support the tank. I suppose she only has the one strap over her shoulder. Where is this from?

    It is from back in the days when a proper lady wouldn’t be caught dead without her pearls and you were allowed to wear gloves on the reef…

    Looks like the tanks are mounted upside down and the regulator is just sitting there. I don't see a manifold.
