Personal presentation
It has been 34 years since I acquired my first helmet, 1974, and as of today a few more do find their way into my collection. It has been a rewarding experience, and still is, for the folks I do meet, and the friendships I've made in the field of collecting the old and new styles of heavy dive gear. It has been a very passionate collecting affair. In 1990, I followed a dream to open a Maritime diving museum, so folks could see what the men had to use to work with in the oceans, rivers, and lakes. A large assortment of things from ships, sextants, binnacle's, steering stations, telegraphs, shipyard models, bells, and many other artifacts complement the dive gear. I still have a extensive collection with me today in old St. Augustine, Florida.
