    I read it was a pair of conshelfs. Anyone have any information on hose routing and lengths ? Was it din or yoke ?

    LOL. Go old school or go home, eh?

    The "original" Hogarthian Manifold was the Scubapro Yoke manifold with barrel o-rings

    Conshelf XIV's.

    7' hose was on the right post, angled down, drysuit (if needed) was also on the right post, at about the 4 o'clock.

    Middle post was the short hose (20 or 22"?), wing inflator (sized as needed) and pressure gauge. Yes, I said middle post, there was no left post and no isolator.

    BTW, if you can get your hands on The Art of Safe Cave Diving, Chapter 5 is about the Hogarthian Gear configuration and was written by Bill Gavin. It's actually more of a mindset article and less of an equipment configuration article, but it'll get you thinking.

    Cool. I've read that hogarthian configuration is intended to be evolving and it was generally ok to configure changes as long as they are well thought out.

    @kensuf aren't you supposed to be lounging on the beach?

    @DanaHunt of importance for the evolution, if you look at Bill's current setup, it is not what you see from the DIR crowd on their doubles

    the two big ones on the reg configuration
    often no isolator-some have them, others don't. Obviously non-isolating crossbars are hard to find, but a few of his are still straightbar
    inflator on the left post

    Inflator on left post because it would be easier to recognize a roll off before it was too late?
