    Happy Father's Day!

    To all the dads out there, I hope you're having a great day with your family. I know my day is complete, spending it with my three.

    Also, Happy Father's Day to my dad, who's been super influential in my life. Here we are, back in May of 1984, for my Open-water checkout dive. Twenty-nine years...they sure fly by

    Your father deserves a Doxa Sub of the highest order, which I would not be surprised if he does have.

    Thanks Larry, Happy Father's Day to you too. The crazy thing I just realized, is that Dad is 41 in this picture...the same age I am right now.

    On a different note, I see a lot of Rolex in your lineup. I'm thinking you need at least one DOXA nestled in there.

    You might be right Ray, he'd probably like a Sub in the 42mm range, as he's very classic when it comes to watch sizes. Most of the time he wears some kind of thin quartz watch on a leather strap, but during colder weather, he will wear the Rolex gold Day/Date that Mom have him right after I was born to commemorate my birth. Actually it's an insurance replacement, because he lost the original, fighting a king mackerel, fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Cool Picture! I think I still have a BC like that in the attic, probably in the same box with my old oval mask.

    I still have Dad's BC, but I traded mine up as I grew. Come to think of it, I still have most of this gear. The Mk10/R109 regulators are still supported by Scubapro, so I had them completely rebuilt and serviced last year. I used Dad's Large size Jetfins until moving up to XLs a few years back, and my size Medium, my son will use soon. The good thing about quality diving gear, is that it can be used for a super long time. I'd be curious to know if you still have your old oval mask.

    I think I do but I think it is probably dry rotted. I will have to do an inventory. I do have an old J valve regulator on my desk with an my old Scubapro depth gauge.

    You might be surprised. I have several vintage Scubapro oval masks in my collection, and all look like they were made yesterday. I wish I could say the same for the U.S. Divers masks. All I've found are cracked with dry rot.

    Re: Happy Father's Day!

    I know I'm chiming in late but it was a very nice fathers day.
    Now I'm kicking myself for trading/letting go my old equipment. Ty is right saving all that great equipment and using all over again.
    Well, you see my father didn't dive, so i did it all by myself over three continents until I settled here in Canada.
    Now I'm keeping all my equipment and I'm trying to switch slowly from Poseidon to Scuba Pro. Slowly but surely!
    And the only thing that stays strong is my Doxa watches!!
