Hanging up the flippers...

I guess it's time to put the word out - following a medical episode a few months ago, I am not longer able to dive, and have to hang up my fins... Sad, but the alternatives, such as being in a box, are less desirable... In short, I have had a defibrillator installed, and it doesn't like pressure! And pressure doesn't like this condition I have.

So, there's going to be a lot of gear appearing on the for sale section. Things like a JJ rebreather, the venerable Sports KISS #007, boosters, tanks, drysuits, parts, regs, lift bags, marine radios, etc. etc.

And a box of urodomes... :woohoo:

Stay tuned, or get in touch!

cheers

Sad to hear, but good on you for listening to the medicos. I know a couple of divers who continue to dive despite medical advice not to. It is a hard decision, and these divers made the choice to accept the extra risk to continue their diving, but unfortunately their decision may also affect those who might need to deal with the consequences of that decision. Hopefully you will continue to contribute to this forum.
