  • Thank you Tkite...every man should have at least one good suit.

    I was given the heads up to expect a package, but what I got in the mail was a seriously large box. I was only able to get around to opening it this past evening just before my work shift. I'm floored and very grateful to you, Tkite for the suit...wetsuit that is. Will be perfect when I get to the open water portion.

    I took off the Doxa which has become an almost daily wear and snapped a couple of pics with the cell phone before heading out to work tonight...

    Thank you again! I am ever amazed at the kindness and generosity here on this forum. Thank you!

    Tim is correct. I took the D-Star, and two KonTikis with me. I find the D-Star very easy to read in the water.

    Yes I run Poseidon Cyklons on my recreational doubles rig, and A Scubapro Full face mask at work on single tanks.

    Kind of like this? But then pick out something to connect it up to.
    Some doubles... and then connect up a helmet

    Lots to learn! Thank =fully I have a bit of time before I get to open water. Looking forward to starting on pool (heated) work in about 2-3 months

    Absolutely! Intend to wear it in the open water around here, so Maryland coast where the water temp is a balmy 60 some at best

    Henry since you like photograpy, you should consider investing in a double hose regulator - all the bubbles go out behind your head.

    The best, modern double hose unit is the Kraken. I am sure all the divers on this forum will secretly want one - I don't make it a secret, I wish I had one and were near some water to do some nice scuba (Vince, eat it up you're in Hawaii LOL). This guy is a HUGE Sea Hunt fan, now retired but he has a lot of good videos on YouTube for you to check out:

    Thanks T. I'll watch those videos when I return home. And thanks for the advice on regs.
