Thats great! Haha! Ive been in 20 degree air (and much colder) and in 35 degree water, but I cant imagine combining them in a bathing suit. LOL I think Ill live vicariously though them on that one.

BobThese are members of the point pleasant first aid dive team, yes we do get to do a lot of fun stuff. The shark picture is from the polar bear plunge that we covered as safety divers for many years. The shark was part of a costume and was going down and we had to go in to save it. The guy who owned it was just too cold to hang on to it. You see the plunge was held in feb and the swimmers are in just swim suits, it was to raise money. The air temp that day was 20 and the water was 34, that why all the divers are in dry suits. It did make for a funny picture!

Yes, in fact it was a Royal Aquamaster made by some outfit called US Divers. And we dove with mask, fins, tank w/´´J´´ valve, tank straps, regulator and swim trunks!Anything else was er, uh, welll, ´´Less than Masculine´´!!! It´s a wonder we survived!Rock

The Royal Aquamaster was top of the line. I imagine yours had the square name plate with the crown. Seems like the round ´´sticker´´ logo on the RAM came in around 1970. What a great era to be diving!
