766,000 Views for
Diver Don and Dacor Nautilus

- Having dived (dove... diven) with DiverDon a few times at Fortune Pond, I've seen him operate his Dacor Nautilus first hand. Quite an interesting piece of Vintage diving history there. And he has it actually restored and working perfectly. The Nautilus works like a submarine ballast tank. You fill it with water and then set your buoyancy to neutral by squirting air into the ballast tank. After that and throughout the dive, a regulator automatically adjusts the air/water ratio in the ballast tank to keep you neutral at all depths. Don made this video of himself diving the Nautilus and it has gone VIRAL with over 766,000 views!
