Ship Salvage:

 
DIVE EQUIPMENT & GEAR
Gone are the days when we brought in 3 or 4 hard hat diving helmets in from overseas. 
 They have become very difficult to source and when we find one, it sells asap.

Occasionally we receive dive equipment from private collections here in the U.S.;
see below and remember if it is available, you'll see "available" under the picture;
 otherwise, it has been sold. Please call or email for pricing/availability.

Sold items will remain pictured to give an idea of the range of styles and types of pieces we have carried previously
and what we continue to search for during our salvage buying trips.
