Hi Jan I've been visiting this page a lot in past 15 years, since the time this was the only site with real info on different units...personally have been diving since 1986. and for different reasons I still do an OC but feel strongly that time for me to go CCR is here as I still do a lot of deep air and some mixing I do for my deco gasses and I am getting older...anyway since recently I live in the Netherlands (Amsterdam) and would really like to meet in person and talk about some things. I would really like to get one MK15.5 as ultimate unit for me, but before that maybe to start diving with some other unit first..?

I'm trying to get replacement canisters for my Navy MSA mask type A4! Do you have any idea where I can find them? PS Merry Christmas!

Just found your site through a Google search on the ship Gunilda. I was a bit curious about the shipwreck as I found a reference to it in a book "Wake of the Green Storm: A Survivor's Tale" which I had also found through another Google search.

What interested me is that page 154 of that book where it talks briefly about the Gunilda states that the captain at the time of the sinking was an elderly Capt. Alexander Corkum. I had a third cousin named Capt. Alexander C. Corkum who was a very good poet and published a book of poetry "Musings of a Mariner" in 1921.

Could this be the same Capt. Alexander? A little more fortunate Googling and I found the June 2014 edition of Northern Wilds magazine and there on page 51 in an article on lighthouses on Lake Superior (totally unrelated to the Gunilda) they used a quote from one of Capt. Alexander's poems and stated that he had been the Master of the Gunilda. Bingo, a little more information known about an earlier relative.

Sometimes it seems to be most unlikely ways that turn up answers.

Hi Jan Willem,

Bij opruimen van niet meer werkende sites zag ik ook jouw website.
Even de groeten doen!
Ik ga nog regelmatig naar tropisch water om te duiken en video's te maken.

Mvg, Ernest

Hoi, Ernest, leuk van je te horen.
Goed dat je steeds nog dukt. Bij mij is het doren banenwissel op een (tijdelijk) laag pitje. Ben nog wel enthsoast met de sport en hoop binnenkort ook weer eens een buitenlandse trip te maken!
Hartelijke groeten,

Jan Willem

Very interesting and informative! What is the status of Gunilda today? Would it be realistic, with modern technology, to raise her?

Sincerely,

Very interesting . I love the proto BA set used to be an instructor on them Mk4 & Mk5, plus the Salvus 1/2 hour set. There used to be a rhyme for the start up procedure :- " While the dresser buckles you, pull out plug and mouth piece do. main valve lock it take a reading, nose clips, bypass do your breathing, protect your sight , get your light . Your alright. remember that from 50 years ago.Happy days
