    Are you sure that is diving related? You sure it is not just a trolling motor or maybe a water agitator for de-icing next to a pier?

    It doesn't look familiar as diving gear, but it does look similar to the water agitators I remember seen in the winter next to the piers when I lived in Annapolis, Md. But I could be totally wrong.

    Can you show some more pictures of the components?

    Well spotted, Ghetto Diver! There was another, similar-purpose, device named "The Nautilus" in the 1962 underwater equipment catalogue of London's premier sporting goods store Lillywhites:

    Reproduced below is an image from a Soviet diving manual illustrating the range of DPVs around in the 1960s:
