Ultimate Vintage Diving at Lake Wazee
- We had a great Vintage Diving get together at Lake Wazee in Black River Falls, WI. Tom McClusky came with two completely coordinated vintage diving set-ups. Day one he had all Voit and Voit Swimaster gear. Day two he had a complete Aqualung yellow set-up. Sea Hunt Jerry brought his complete Mike Nelson outfit including silver wetsuit, lead weights, triple tanks, Voit 50 Fathom reg,... And a real Voit PortaSub scooter. This is probably the only working PortaSub in the world and we got to dive it. And, I think I was representing the "homebuilt" era of scuba diving... I was diving a tank that was converted from Oxygen, and a bunch of mis-matched vintage equipment. - We managed to shoot some video... Hope you like it.

FreezeUp Diver
Vintage scuba diving the day before freeze up at Lake Victoria, MN. Diving vintage Twin Tanks with a vintage double hose regulator. The regulator is a restored and upgraded US Divers DA Aqua Master. Now called a "Cyclone HPR". The twin tanks are Sportsways 42s and were originally orange colored. After restoration, they were fitted with a classic canvas twin tank harness. Air temp was 5 degrees F. Water was a bit warmer at 39 degrees. Broken ice near shore was from a partial freeze-up the night before. Wetsuit is a BARE 5mm with 3mm hooded vest. The only parts of me that got cold were hands and forehead. Starting and finishing from a nice warm house helps!
