Thrilled to find this forum! Learned to dive in '68 when I was 14 at one of the Montgomery, AL, YMCA's. Learned on double-hose Aqua-masters. Instructor was Henry Baker. One of Henry's partners at their dive shop (which was totally different from today's dive shop atmosphere) is still in the dive business in Ozark, Alabama, and still runs a six-week comprehensive open water course.
I have purchased a Phoenix Royal Aqua-Master and anxiously await its arrival.
Just met some guys, including luis and others, at a vintage gear gathering at Panama City Beach this past weekend (June 7-9, 2012) and got to see some fantastic vintage gear.
Again, glad to be here! Thanks to vintagescuba for this forum.
