    OK, I was think about the old days and central skin divers out on merrick road on Long Island... But there was a Dive shop in Amityville / massapequa on old Sunrise Hwy.... There was a old two man sub in the front parking lot... Anyone remember the name of the shop and the guy that ran it... I spent many a day there hanging out and learning about wreck diving... Thanks in advance for any help in kick starting my old brain..

    Will Jacobs had an shop in in the late 1950s a place called Long Beach, New York.

    Will and I collaborated on the prospective design, development and finally acceptance of the red & white divers flag so many years ago...

    Could it be Will's shop ?
