Well, with my wife not able to dive anymore, I am pretty sure I am giving up diving :D Its just not as much fun without her, and with limited vacations, I would rather spend them with her.

Anyway, I got a lot of scuba gear that we will probably be selling over the next few months. Before I start e-baying the lot, I thought I would see if amyone here was interested

HERS:

Scuba Pro Classic BCD w/ Air Source (I think this is a small)
7mil full body wetsuit
Spare Air
Oceanic Regulator (I will check on model)

His:

Sea quest Jumpsuit XXL 3/4/3
Oceanic Regulator Same as wifes
Oceanic BCD with Air source XL

I am sure I have more, but I have not taken time to inventory it all. All has been regularly maintained, the wifes stuff has less than 60 dives on it. Mine has about 200.

If your looking for some spare or back-up gear, give me a shout.

Bob

Hi Bob,

Consider this. I have been diving since 1972 my wife of 10 years (do the math) is not interested in water sports. We manage to plan vacations were I am able to get some good diving in and she does not feel left alone. We make it a point to go to larger full (and I mean full) service resorts with spas etc. So when I am off for a morning of diving she is getting a massage, or enjoying some quite time with a book by the pool. I am very lucky in that A understands my passion for the water and I do get off on dive only trips without her a few times a year also, but even if this wasnt the case I am pretty sure I wouldnt sell my gear. If you would like some resort suggestions I would be happy to make some.

This might be time for a talk rather than a sale.

Theres my 2 cents worth.

Yeah, I probably will not sell my gear, on further thought. Only problem with that type of trip is that I am so spoiled by Live-aboards. When I go diving, I truly want to dive -eat -sleep. Repeat.

:rolleyes:

Sex is overrated compared to diving amongst a few hundred hammerheads. :)

The hammerhead rush lasts longer. :rolleyes:
