I find Sea Hunt episodes to watch on CD excellent for my daily treadmill routine. Here are two things I'm wondering about right now.
1. I have noticed on several different episodes that on occasion I have seen divers wearing wet suit hoods having holes right over the ears. These look to be 4 holes of about 1/4" diameter in a diamond pattern. My only thought is maybe this was to help the actors hear the director in a scene. Any thoughts?
2. While the male divers all seem to be wearing Voit Viking fins, female divers (in addition to all using a smaller tank, perhaps a "60"?) all seem to be using Voit SailFin fins.Did they not make Vikings in women's sizes then?
I remember when I was a kid these were the fins I got in a childrens' set with a cheap mask (plastic lens, no metal rim) and a snorkel in the "S" shape with the cage/ball valve at the top. Not exactly professional grade gear! By the way, I got this set by saving books of trading stamps my mom got at the grocery. I would wear my mask, fins and snorkel while sitting on the floor watching Sea Hunt!
