    I found out that Hydroglove went out of business recently due to the owners death. Does anyone know if there Is any interest for someone to get into the market of making all-latex drysuits ? Is there anyone even willing to make similar suits, even custom suits?

    Interesting, we have been communicating with Ty Alley of Aquala, and they are still making dry suits.

    I see that the Aquala website is having some problems, but it may be because it is being updated.

    PS, the Aquala website is up, but I cannot see it on my iPad without other software (Flash Player) which is not available for the iPad.

    It was my husband who owned Hydroglove. It has been over a year now and I am finally ready to do something with his business. Anyone interested in purchasing his business please contact me directly. I really need to clear out all of the forms and tank that he made and used for the manufacturing of the dry suits. I know very little about the process but am willing to let any interested parties go through all of his records in order to learn more about how it ran. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and during this difficult time. contact me at cocopuff71765@gmail.com

    There is a person interested in the business however I am not sure of his time line for getting things back up & running. He has given me permission to pass along his information so you can inquire directly to him as to his intentions. His name is Ty & his e-mail address is dive@aquala.com

    My husband , Bill owned Hydro Grove. Last May I posted that the business was up for grabs for anyone who was interested. I had several people send me e-mails expressing interest with one person who seemed like he was very interested and looking to continue with Hydroglove. That person was Ty Alley from Aquala. However I now feel that that is no longer the case as I have not heard from Ty in quite some time. He has not replied to e-mails I have sent him nor has he replied to e-mails that others have sent requesting information about a possible start up date for Hydroglove. I am saddened by the thought that Ty has had a change of heart but find that I must move on. As of Today .... I am reopening the Ad for anyone interested in continuing with HydroGlove. I am looking for persons that truly wish to carry on with Bill's company. Many ... many people have contacted me looking to purchase suits so I am confident that whomever takes over the business will be successful. Please contact me at cocopuff71765@Gmail.com if you would like more information. I am extremely flexible with price and will do my best to answer any & all of your questions. I apologize for the delay with the restart of the company .. I had high hopes that Aquala was going to take over the business. It's my hope that there is someone out there wanting to continue on with Bill's dream.
    Thanks everyone
    Tina

    Hydroglove is back in business with a new owner and a new location. We've been open for about 4 weeks now and we are wading through an overwhelming load of orders while we figure out the production process and assure product quality.

    Thanks to all who have purchased or plan to purchase, we're ready to go!

    You can get to us at www.hydroglove.org or www.hydroglove.com!
