If life is giving you melons, you just might be dyslexic.

Redwinepeter, do you have any pictures?

In the meantime, SeaWay was a German regulator manufacturer.

That’s a post 1975 Sportsways. See catalog in VDH manuals and catalog section found as a link on home page bottom. That logo is found on cover of 1975 Sportsway’s catalog, complete with SW and little fish.

I remember that regulator from 1975, definitely Sportsways.

A flow through balanced piston first stage that was trying to compete with Scubapro Mk-5. in some ways similar to the competition from the USD Calypso IV.

In Puerto Rico we had a newly open dive shop (in 1975) that offered that regulator as their flagship competition to our Scubapro regulators.
