Cert early 80s and have been into vintage for 8 yrs now. Modest collection : Rene triples, pst lp45 twins, twin 38's. Nemrod, Mistral, DAAM, Dacor regs. I have been to this site in the course of interwebz searches...thought I'd make it official.
Any other Florida peeps? I lived in South Florida for a number of years, only meeting one other seasonal vintage diver. I worked in a busy dive shop too. In N FL, now. Thx.

I have a number of Dacor double hose, and like them a lot. I had converted my Clipper to a R-4, and have just converted it back as I acquired a Clipper original duckbill (somewhat different than the U.S. Divers Company and AMF Voit duckbills).
