Stanman - Boulder,, Coloradp USA About Me: I first went under water on the end of a hose during WWII to work on changing bent screws of the LST of which I was the Engineering Officer. I fell in love with being underwater and what I could see. In 1964 my then 14 year old son Mike and I became certified. Subsequently I joined the BSAC. Since my early dives in the Atlantic off the New Jersey coast I have made more than 600 dives with my last one five years ago at the age of 84. I have since surrendered my membership but live with wonderful memories of Scuba from its earliest days and the things I have enjoyed with good friends, my sons and a grandson. I have written about it in the book, "An Old Timer´s Scuba Tales", available from Amazon.com.
