Miflex Regulator Hose | Pink

The Miflex Xtreme Pink coloured hoses listed here are Low Pressure (LP) Regulator hoses. We offer premium quality, Italian made, double-braided Miflex Xtreme hoses at world competitive, value for money prices.

In addition to popular sport/recreational diving hoses in a variety of lengths and fittings, we stock hard-to-find technical diving hoses such as 210 cm (84 inch) regulator second-stage hoses.

3/8" UNF male thread is the standard size used for the majority of 1st stage regulators, but certain makes of regulators require the larger 1/2" UNF size. If you are unaware of this, please check! If you can't figure it out, then please provide us with the details of your regs via email, or give us a call.

PLEASE LOOK CAREFULLY, as we offer so many different hoses that it is easy to make a mistake when ordering.

The Albert William was built in 1863, by James Laing in Sunderland, England as a three-masted iron barque. She had an overall length of approximately 162.5 ft (50 m), beam 26 ft (7.92 m) and draught 17.3 ft (5.27 m).

Albert William Sinking

Totally wrecked on 18 May 1955 while under tow and the tow cable parted from tug Swiftness. Thrown against a reef in a freak 50 knots (93 kpm) SW gale off Point Gellibrand. Hugh and Anne Bennett had been living on the empty wool-lighter for a few months and lost all their possessions. With their dog, they spent a grueling 28 hours on board after stranding, before being taken off.

Army engineers blasted the remains on 18 August 1961. The mast was hauled away as scrap. The vessel had been partially broken up earlier.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
