Thank you one and all for your comments and opinions. I realize I neglected to mention that both my husband are certified divers. After reading all posts AND rearranging an aft cockpit locker we have decided to go with tanks for deeper dives and a small hookah for just under the boat.

It was not developed by "non-certified SCUBA folks".

Yeh For many PADI developed dive training.

That's forgetting the various dive systems developed by many of the navy's around the world. In many countries training systems were first developed by the armed forces and I suspect (don't actually know) the PADI recreational diver training was develped by ex military trained divers.
