Hello Morse Diving Buddies,
I don’t know about you guys–but I am a sucker for labels! If y’all saw my closet, you may be a bit shocked and somewhat marveled. Some would say amused… others still would say jealous. Labels mean a lot: quality, endurance, reliability, validity, trust, and so much more. That is why when I learned that the Mark V Manual was not the only United States Navy distributed product from Morse Diving, I went a little shopping crazy!
Morse Diving, Inc is an incredible label in and of itself. The “Morse Diving” name comes with 175 years of trust and product quality assurance. However, a ton of our products also come with a “Unites States Navy” backing as well!
Check out all of the products…
|- Mark V Diver’s Knife
- US Navy Control Belt

My father, who has not once been diving (and is really more of an inside man), already has the Navy-Official Diving knife on his birthday list! It makes the perfect gift!

I have to admit something to all of you…I feel as though we have come to know each other fairly well… we Facebook, blog, email, Tweet, and connect in all other kinds of ways… Thus, I can be honest with y’all in every possible way… I have never been diving before.
Ok, Ok…get the sharp inhales of oxygen, the gasps of horror, and the general bemused looks out of your systems. I told you that I was going to be honest. There are a lot of things still on my Bucket List. Hey I’m only going to be 25 this month! (But if anyone asks—tell them I’m 22 if I’m a day—wink ; -)
I’m sure you are all wondering why I’m confessing this now. Why confess it at all? Well, partly because I have been rereading my college papers on the subgenera of confessional poetry; and, partly because Morse Diving, Inc has just released the Mark V Manual: the official manual of guidelines for the US Navy regarding proper use of the US NAVY diving system. As all of my Morse Diving buddies know, the Mark V Diving helmet is probably our most prominent product. Before Morse Diving and the US Navy released the manual I had no clue what the Mark V was really for (mock if you will, I was born blonde and have accepted that fact). But now, all I have to do to sound intelligent, well-versed in Navy/Diving jargon, or just super cool is buy a copy of the US Navy Diving Manual!
The US NAVY DIVING Manual features:
Free shipping WORLDWIDE
Beautifully Detailed Diagrams
This is NOT a HOW-TO Guide to build a helmet! This is an in-depth procedural manual on Surface-Supplied Diving — very technical:)
Call 1-781-7772, email email@example.com, and/ or visit http://www.morsediving.com/ to get your copy today! Get a copy of the Mark V Manual if: you have a Mark V system, if you want to impress a good looking girl or guy at a party, if you are a diving or Military collector, if you like manuals, or for the detailed descriptions and diagrams that will literally make you smarter—Savvy!

Sitting in my house last night I could not help but feel as though I was in London circa 1943. The air cracked with the smell of sulfur and smoke. The usually dark neighborhood glowed in breathtaking bursts. And, the peaceful, dull, melodic cadence of quiet that normally drives me bananas was replaced with hundreds and hundreds of booms. Yesterday was the Nation’s most important holiday; the 4th of July. On the 4th we celebrate independence from tyranny and oppression. We celebrate patriotism and the general awesomeness of the United States of America. It really is one of the flyest holidays that we have.
One of the best parts about working for Morse Diving, Inc is knowing that I work for a real American company. We are what it means to be American. This thought rang through my head as I sat back in my chair listening to the explosions in the sky around me. There are very few true, blue (Red, White, and Blue) American companies these days. Even the companies that we think of as the essential “American Companies” cannot be classified as such in this day and age: i.e. General Motors, Ford, et cetera
They are being forced to reroute production to other countries. However, Morse Diving, Inc is a staple. We are American Made in every sense of the phrase.
For almost 175 years we have manufactured the finest diving equipment in the United States. Our products are utilized by the United States Navy, the Canadian Navy, private companies, individual divers, and global businesses. There has been little change to the products that we manufacture in over a century and a half of business. Morse Diving, Inc makes solid, dependable, long lasting products– products that withstand the test of time like the very company that makes them.
Morse Diving, Inc makes the finest products in the finest country, for the finest customers. This has been, is, and forever shall be our policy.
Happy Independence Day from your friends at Morse Diving!

I, like many Americans, have been fighting an on-going battle with insomnia. Instead of sleeping at night I watch infomercials. Of course I had to use all of the will power I had not to buy one, or two, of every product the pitch men were hawking me, Seriously though, I did notice a very interesting pattern…everything is “Limited.” Limited time only, limited price, limited quantities…et cetera… But, what exactly is so limited about these products? I can go to the local dollar store and by 100 Sham-Wow knock-offs for fifty-cents.
I have not seen a product on an infomercial that can be deemed special, extraordinary, or even unique. What can, we, as consumers, buyers, sellers, collectors, call “limited” and mean even more so extraordinary.
I have found the answerer:
Something worth collecting, something that is literally limited.
Morse Diving, Inc. is about to celebrate its 175th anniversary. If you have not heard, Morse is the oldest diving company, established in 1837. In celebration of this monumental event we are selling a LIMITED edition (and a very LIMITED amount) of the 1904 American Dive Collection Catalogue. Morse Diving has a Limited production deal that totally benefits our loyal customers! This hardcover, leather-bound book contains beautiful sketches, images, and price descriptions of…not only Morse Diving equipment, but other popular diving brands from over the last hundred years or more! Yes, maybe the P90x deal is for a “limited time only;” but if you miss out on owning one of only 100 historical diving catalogs…the amount of time you will be kicking yourself for will not be limited!
Collectors of the world take note: the very foreword of this book explains the how rare these Catalogues are. Diving collectors of the world take note: “It could be dangerous and possibly fatal to use the information in this book it was printed for its rich historical information” (Mathieson). The entire history of diving, up to and including 1904, is neatly compiled and at your fingertips. Check out the specks:

On Sunday my little brother was watching one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I could not help but sit and enjoy the swashbuckling fun with him for a few moments. It is not that I find the plot terribly interesting—it’s the time period! I am in love with the Victorian era. Everything about it fascinates me. The ornamentation, the fashion, the everyday objects that are so dissimilar yet not from our own. Any opportunity to observe the past time period I jump at. The more I study it the more I can sit back and imagine myself living there.
Over the years I have seen many visuals of the centuries that have passed. An image of a centuries old vase from Athens, Greece showing the wonders of the gods on Olympus recreated for a movie. I have seen an ornamental brush, comb, mirror set made of jade or ivory from the Victorian era through the glass case in a museum. The glossy surface of history books have shown me a sculpture—carved to perfection—showing the awesomeness and indulgence of the Renaissance. The specific, unique, and often pedantic manner in which all of these items were constructed is unique to their time period. They are history-rich and so full of life! An object-personified– because it can tell us all about the people and culture that surrounded it. The things that people used and made are as important and telling as the history books that we read in school—more so because they have soul.
If you cannot already tell I have always had a passion for archeology and history. Pieces like the ones I have described are not readily available to the everyday man. The antiques, so vibrant with stories and ghosts of the past, have all mostly been unearthed, mostly. There is one place that we can still look to discover objects of history–yet to be disclosed chapters that are a part of man’s continuing tome—the ocean. As deep, vast, and tempestuous as the ocean is—it has swallowed many ships. Ships that were stocked with bounty, art, tools, brushes, perhaps even something more valuable that we cannot yet imagine it! The glorious dream of discovering gold dablooms, pirate treasure, et cetera may be somewhat illustrious; however, artifacts are unearthed from shipwrecks by divers—just look at the divers who brought up the two oldest bottles of champagne http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-06-02/world-s-oldest-champagne-from-shipwreck-may-sell-for-145-million-a-bottle.html ! Some shipwrecks have been discovered—many have yet to be. The one question that YOU must ask yourself is what is awaiting ME beyond the depths of the sea: mysteries, historical breakthrough, personal epiphanies, and fame— academic or societal, really anything. The only way to find out is to set out on the adventure of your lifetime. It is a wicked adventure; however, with Morse Diving gear, you can withstand any trial set before you. Make sure that you are equipped with the Morse Diving Mark V Standard Watch so that you can track your passage in time! Email Donna @http://Sales_Service@MorseDiving.com to start your adventure! Happy diving!

I swear I'm a water sign!
I’m Kathleen Moore– I just joined the Morse Diving family as the Social Media Director. I wanted to say hello and introduce myself to all of the Morse Diving extended family. I am so excited to be a part of a great American company. I have to admit that I have never been diving; I did however, want to be a mermaid when I was little. The ocean has always seemed like an escape to me. It is the last place that we can explore. There is so much beauty, life, and science down there—right at our fingertips! It is no wonder I was throwing pennies into every fountain I could find wishing for a tail! While I never got to be a mermaid, I now have the privilege of working for one of the greatest diving companies around—Morse Diving! This is a compromise I can live with (I think I would have gotten annoyed with the cell service under the sea after a while anyway)!
I am so happy at Morse Diving. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and a huge smile! Since I have started here I have learned so much about diving, the etymology of diving, and about the birth of our company. Did you guys know that all of the Morse Diving products are made in the good old U S or A? Well they are! We may be a GLOBAL company—but we take our American roots seriously. And our roots are deep. Morse diving was founded in 1837. That means we have over a century of trusted product reliability and human resources. How many businesses around today can say that with any degree of veracity? I cannot imagine anything more important than reliability and trust! Plus, we supplied equipment to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies—how cool is that! Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley around our products! That is star power!
I cannot wait to get to know all of you more. Please feel free to connect with me via my twitter @ www.twitter.com/kathleenmoore18 or through any of the Morse Diving sites. I am here to help you stay in touch with us- and I am psyched to do it. So, if you are a serious diver, interested in the sport, interested in the history, or just want to support a local American made company check out our website at http://www.morsediving.com! Like us on Facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/morsediving ! And don’t forget to follow us on twitter @ www.twitter.com/morsediving!

‘Til Next Time,
Just who is the Lakeview Polar Bear Club (LPBC)? I was wondering the same thing. They are from Chicago, Illinois and hosted their 10th annual plunge this weekend.
This blurb describing the group was taken directly from their website:
The LPBC was born in late 2001 when Brian Marchal decided that he wanted to join a polar bear club and jump in Lake Michigan. Being new to Chicago he thought it might be a good way to meet a
few people and have a good time. Unfortunately, back in the Stone Age of 2001 most polar bear clubs didn’t have websites and poor Brian couldn’t find a club to join. So he decided to convince a big group of his friends to go to the Lake on New Year’s Day in 2002 and jump in the lake. Turns out that Brian wasn’t very persuasive. Therefore, on January 1st, 2002 the humble beginnings of the LPBC were born when a group of 3 people jumped into Lake Michigan.
A few weeks after the initial plunge Brian heard that one of his cousins needed a lung transplant. The family did not have much money, but the Marchal family is pretty darn big. The idea came to life of a polar plunge event to raise money for his cousin. If they brought together all the family and friends they could raise enough money to significantly help out his cousin and their family. Plans started immediately and on January 25th, 2003, the LPBC hosted their first charity fundraiser.
Every year, the LPBC raises several thousand dollars toward the medical support of a nominated family in need.

There has to be a joke here. Fish the singer. Fish in the ocean. Diving. I can’t come up with anything golden. Maybe you will have better luck than me.
In any case, I came across an interesting story. Apparently Derek Dick (formerly known as Fish, the famous musician) is raising money for the East Lothian Divers (the Dunbar-area branch of the Scottish Sub-Aqua Club) by having a gig.
Dick only recently signed on with the diving club this past year even though he’s been diving for sport for the past 22 years.
He has, he told Divernet, already appreciated the camaradie and diving expeditions which have “contributed a lot to my life in this last year when I was recovering from a major operation on my vocal chords”.
After the club lost an expected grant, Fish stepped in to help them raise the needed £5000.
More information on the event can be found on the Fish website www.the-company.com.
