More vintage scuba equipment
This time around a BCD dating back to 1990, again some vintage scuba
. According to the owners, who are participating in Sail Indonesia
2011 and are currently anchored in front of Gili Air
. it's a Northern Diver
BCD made out of hypalon
which is almost indestructible, back in the days they got at a special deal in the UK for their gear. Apparently Scubapro threatened to sue them since the BCD looked similar to a Scubapro design from that time area and as a result this design was on the market for only a brief period of time.
The BCD's are in perfect working condition and on the left of the BCD you can see where originally a pony bottle was located.
It's always good and interesting to see some vintage scuba equipment in working condition. The owners of this BCD said that they have a friend who owns a Kawasaki demand valve regulator in working condition that's 45 years old with an upstream valve! It must be a challenge to find spare parts nowadays. Now that's something very interesting and I would love to have a look at that one!
In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this entry and thanks to Bone & Beth, safe travels!
