I am asking here because I would guess that some of you athletes also get into water. Or maybe you will direct me to a more appropriate "forum" to ask my questions.
I picked up some scuba gear at a garage sale. I got 3 regulators (I think) and two tanks for $40. I bought the equipment from the original purchasers and users, nice people, their "story" made sense.
I'm sure it was a good deal, but I am not sure how best to sell it.
- Craig's List would seem best for the tanks, just because they weigh so much. But one of the advantages of eBay is the bidding establishes what the market price is. My eBay rating is excellent - I disclose every defect and I take returns.
- Start the bidding at $40 for each tank and each regulator?
- Should I get the tanks certified? Then add the cost ($35? $50?) to the starting price. I know the diver needs to have it done before he/she can even get it filled, but I know I would prefer getting it done myself. Is there a lot of danger that the tanks are useless if they look as good as the pictures below?
- Ditto on the regulators. Should I have a dive shop test them?
Or should I haul everything to a good dive shop and ask them what to do? Maybe post an ad on their bulletin board (are dive shops traditionally that user-friendly?)
