Good luck. As mentioned already, P67 housings were custom-made to order and there's somewhere around a dozen in the world. I've done a bit of window shopping and they seem quite tough to find. That could probably be overcome by slapping a $5k offer on a board somewhere, but who knows? Again, unless you are willing to commit some pretty serious cash for a housing that will limit your number of shots, the P67 marine housing is a fantasy. You could try it in one of those plastic bags, but they just give me the shivers. I love my P67, but underwater's not the right place for it.
One way you could get around the limited number of shots would be a 70mm back with a Hasselblad, if it fit in the housing. It takes a bulk roll of film that's like 50 or 100 feet long, so you could get a lot more shots before having to surface and reload.
Not just to you (the OP actually said he was pool diving), but in general: give really serious consideration to whether you want to shoot film underwater. The Nikonos-V is a great tool and has amazing ultrawides, but instant feedback is king. You won't be doing that many dives, and underwater strobing does take some getting used to. What would take a few dives to get used to with digital can take a couple trips if you only get feedback once a day. If you're just that good, go hog wild, but underwater is an extremely demanding environment for photography. The Nikonos-V will help with this, because it can meter TTL during a strobe exposure. But, If I had $5k to blow on a housing, I would blow it on an Ikelite housing and a Canon 5d2, plus a good strobe.
If nothing else, consider taking along a second rig with a digital P+S and a housing, along with a small optically-slaved strobe. This won't set you back too far if you have the money for diving with medium format, and it will let you get some instant results for practice.
