Yeah, like when you get to be 68 with a bum back! For 21 years, from 1968 to 1989 I dove double 72 steels exclusively regardless the depth. Even had 'em O2 cleaned for Nitrox for a few years. I now dive a single 120 steel with a 30 or 40 cu ft aluminum EANx pony. But for a serious OE wreck dive I'd probably rent a pair of 80 aluminum EANx tanks and band them together. An aluminum 80 costs 8 bucks to fill with EANx but you can rent them for only 2 bucks more. Of course the wreck would have to be in less than 130 fsw. Deeper wrecks? Not on my diving dance card anymore.
