Several years ago, perhaps five, I called the old number I had for Coastal School of Deep Sea Diving, I was looking to purchase and old Mark V spun copper diving helmet. Al Mikalow answered the phone, said the school has been closed for awhile, that the old helmets were more valuable than ever and in demand for diving jobs, He also said he was dying, that when he closed the doors to the building it would be for the last time, and the telephone number would be disconnected forever, amazing that he picked up the phone, he had not been there for some time. I graduated from Coastal in 1968.
