Regulator Hose | Fluro Yellow


The Miflex Xtreme Fluro Yellow 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.

Will O The Wisp Shipwreck History — Built in 1840

The Will O' The Wisp was an armed wooden clipper schooner of 101 tons, built in 1840, at Liverpool, England especially for the opium trade, which it entered in 1842. The vessel had a length of 76 ft (23 m), a beam of 18 ft (5.49 m), and a depth of 10.5 ft (3.2 m).

As steamers displaced fast sailing vessels it went into the Pacific-Honolulu trade. In 1852-53 it engaged in intercolonial trading between New Zealand, Launceston and Melbourne during the Gold Rush.

Will O The Wisp Sinking — 8 October 1853

On its final voyage, the Will O The Wisp left Auckland, New Zealand, with a cargo of timber, bricks, potatoes and sundries bound for Melbourne under the command of its owner Captain R. Highat. The vessel had successfully entered The Heads and was beating up the West Channel but was unable to work off the Williams Sands on the east side of the channel, and went ashore of opposite Swan Point on 8 October 1853.

The captain and the crew were rescued and taken to Melbourne aboard the Wanderer the following day. The master was also the owner of the ship and its cargo.

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.
