Didn't Scuba Pro come out with the BC only in 1974?
Wouldn't that make that whole article in early 1975 sorta moot?
It was never about machismo, it was that they were mostly junk then. Inflatable baggies that you could strap a tank into.
Local boats did require everybody to have a BC by the mid 80's.... then the requirement sorta petered out.
