[Choose #2] I’d buy a small to medium compressor that goes to at least 4500psi, then a Trimix blending stick, He & O2 sensors, and however many 4500psi bank cylinders I could afford with what money is left after that.

[Choose #1] With CCR option 2 is minimal and option 3 is better when there are no bubbles...

[Choose #3] As much as I want a CCR, until I’m doing more tropical dives than quarry dives the bang for the buck today for me would be camera/lights.

[Choose #1] None of the above: I would spend it all on liveaboard trips.

[Choose #2] Have the compressor but would get a nitrox blending stick to avoid some of the O2 hazards.

[Choose #3] As I already have the compressor and camera outfit and know the associated costs of all three choices,Closed Cuircuit Rebreather requires the most maintenance followed by the Air compressor. The camera outfit will be the least expensive to maintain.

[Choose #3] I would actually like an old boat to setup as a dive boat but if those are the choices.

[Choose #1] A compressor requires quite a bit of maintenance, already been through the camera phase, so I guess I’ll give a rebreather a try!

[Choose #2] I would get more use out of an air compressor.
