New Argonaut Kraken Owners Post

Wed Jun 25, 2014 10:13 am

I must apologize in advance for the picture quality (because it doesn't even begin to do the Argonaut Kraken justice), but I wanted to share this impressive regulator with everyone! It is absolutely stunning in person. Every single detail of this regulator is extremely well done and of the highest quality.

I want to also say thank you to Bryan, Luis, and Herman for their efforts and dedication and thank you to everyone else who contributed to the development and testing of the Argonaut Kraken. Each and everyone of you rock! 8)

I could not be happier with this regulator, and I am honored to have contributed in a tiny way by being a test diver. Some day, this project is going to be in books, and it is cool to be here while it is happening. The materials included are all top notch. Thanks to everyone for this. Luis, your design looks amazing. Bryan, thanks for taking the huge risk in doing this. You two are the Gagnan and Cousteau of 2014. Thanks to everyone else who helped as well :)

I have accosted no less than five Fed Ex truck drivers this morning on the road to my office. Each one said "look over here for so in so he or she may have it on their truck". Finally had to go to work (sigh) and wait for them to deliver. Once it arrives I am diving on my way home tonight.
First dives? 1967 and I never lost the fever.

do you know how unnerving it is that my package delivery date is not until 7/1 (and end of day schedule)???? You folks are killing me with the pictures, and the soon to be reported dives.....

UUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! :evil:

Update: Oh man, now the tracking says 7/2.........

It will really be something when all of the initial Krakens have been received by their new owners and they have posted pictures of them here. 8)

Mine will have to travel half way around the world. I hope that it is not too tired when it arrives. :roll: :wink:

There is something awesome about finding that box with the angry trident wielding octopus on your porch :)
