 What well dressed women will be wearing this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Halloween Costume

 

 

In mid-September Ric received an e-mail asking for help. The sender needed dimensions for the Navy Mark V helmet. He wanted to make a plastic helmet which would be light enough to wear all evening. The top was made from a 14" Chinese commercial fishing buoy and the breastplate was fabricated from a sump pump basin. The weights on the weight belt are wood blocks. The top has green lights in it to give a spectral look to the costume ala Scooby Doo.

 

 

 

 

 

On the road again

 

Want to give a Kawasaki a little extra class.

How about a Mark V Logo on the Air Cleaner.

MOAV Russ always wears a helmet when riding his motorcycle.

His only problem is when the umbilical runs out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ink, it's not just for octopus anymore.

 

A. E. Burr sent us photos of his old Browne Mask and his new tattoo. He bought the mask and several back entry dresses from M&E Marine back in 1958. He says the mask is still in good shape and diveable. The artwork for the tat is the Mark V line drawing from the DESCO website. The tattoo artist has the artwork so who's next?

Chris Blackstone sent us photos of his arms sporting some creative artwork.
