I wish I had my current camera for this event, I love the cave entrances:

I am going to have to sneak into the Blue Hole once more or maybe just free dive the chimney, I have a photo in my brain and I must take it, somehow ;).

Some stuff I just acquired. The DA needs a rebuild, so this will be my first big DIY project. My Phoenix is way too nice to experiment on. This one has a lot of potential, and I'll keep it without a Phoenix, and dive it original.....if I get it back together. :D

My Sportsways got a makeover a la new tubing by Herman. Will try it out on Sunday morning. I love my hardback Basic Scuba...I just love hard bound books.

BTW, when I start taking my other DA apart, I'll probably be flooding the board with ?'s. Go easy on me.....

Ha! That was here when I moved in 10 years ago. It's an 8ft island between my kitchen and living room, it's poured acrylic (?) over old wood planks, coins, starfish, some weird stuff with a huge rope around the edge. It took a long time for me warm up to it.

Thanks Charlie! I'm studying the bible before I crack open the can of the DA. I've read it a few times, but now particularly focusing on pieces-parts. I'll post more pics as I go.... :D

The R-4 that came along with my recently purchased tiny-tanks, has made a very nice new home for itself. :D

My Dacor display, such as it is.

That Dacor is an inspiration. I have a new R3N and I will now seek a Dacor back pack and valve for a steel 72. Your Dacor looks great! Steve
