    Interesting, especially following the acquisition of Pelagic Pressure Systems by Aqua Lung. Sounds like a perfect new acquisition for Huish Outdoors.

    Huish has atomic and Liquidvision to manuf computers and the distribution rights to Suunto, I can't see that Pelagic is that attractive to them, I could be wrong... :)

    I might be off, but this would require major capitol - much. much larger than these smaller acquisitions. Aqualung is a totally different creature in terms of a balance sheet.
