    This things have been moved from house to house for the past 35 years or so and that's enough.

    Anybody that cares to have them for the next year's please let me know
    They have their backpack and most likely will pass hydro if anyone actually wants to dive with them.
    Will post more photos .

    Wow, a Hatt's Skindiver Supply, 70 Front Street, Melbourne Florida, sticker. I haven't seen that in long time.

    When I lived on my sailboat, I was in the marina right in front of them and before that, I actually worked with them for a very short time (around 1980).

    I hope so too, but if I don't get any takers by next weekend they will go to the local goodwill.

    We have way too much dive gear and I'm starting with them.
    Seriously who needs close to 40 tank valves from the 60's and 70's?

    How about modern mouthpieces? Brand new. IMG_20200808_133126065.jpg

    How about a fan that connects to PVC pipes to create a suit drier? Why do I still have that if I haven't used it since the 90's? IMG_20200808_141236486.jpg

    And don't get me started with cold water gloves and 5mm wet suits ? Oh and dry suits? I have a few of those too that won't use again because I no longer dive colder than 70-72° water

    This is a ridiculous disease .. accumulatingthia much gear is not healthy.

    there can be good money in old double hoses, even if they may require restoration. could be enough to put towards a future trip

    Agree with @runsongas. I would advise some patience. Might be sitting on a small treasure and not knowing it.

    In your wonderful box of stuff, would you have any White Stag or SAS piston first stages? The small ones?

    Interesting how dive equipment apparently seems to have a life of its own ...
    given enough time and it seems to multiply

    Place a single regulator in a box...
    come back ten years later i\there are ten regulators

    it happens to every one - IF - They remain in diving long enough
