    Default Complete Backmount Cave Kit

    Been keeping this for possible deep wreck diving but with my rebreather do not need it anymore and have not been doing the wrecks; all 99.9% freshwater use.

    PST 104’s doubled with manifold and bands; Last Hydro: 4/11. Out of VIP but full of 32%
    Dive rite regulators (RG1200s I think), one long hose and a necklaced backup with inflators (drysuit and wing) and a pressure gauge.
    Dive Rite Classic wing
    Aluminum backplate and deluxe harness
    Kit ready to put on and dive…
    Package: $1500
    Don't really want to do it piecemeal.

    Can deliver to JB or Ginnie

    Mathematically, you dove at least 1000 times with this gear, and 999 dives were freshwater dives, and 1 dive was non-freshwater, possibly saltwater.

    That might be about right, I did not do the math as there are several confounds...the kit has been assembled over time some added at later dates. The doubles (the oldest part of the assembly) were purchased when I was cavern in the late 90s and they, along with the al backplate are the only items that I have had in saltwater and then twice (both on the Oriskany). The rest of the kit is much newer...probably under 100 dives on the wing and the dive rite regulators have seen duty mainly as stage bottle regs. The harness probably has 25 dives on. The doubles probably do have over 1000. Bill

    So to be accurate, the doubles are only 99.8% freshwater use, right?

    Let's just drop the percent fresh vs saltwater and say they have an 11 hydro and I have used then in salt water twice...sorry we missed that Oriskany dive Russell then they would have been in salt water a third time if we had gone. Bill

    Looks like no one wants them as a kit so splitting it up:

    Doubles 650
    Regs 250 each
    Backplate and Harness 75
    Wing 200

    or now 1100 for the works
