View Full Version : Help with my weighting

05-23-2008, 05:35
In fresh water I was wearing 13lbs of lead with a 3mm full, 3mm shorty, and a 4/3 hooded vest layered. I am diving in salt water, but loosing the 3mm shorty. Any guesses on how much weight to add? the shorty is a XXL (I am 6'3" 230 lbs. I know the salt water will add roughly 7 lbs (right?) and the shorty will cause me to loose a few lbs, any guesses?

I'm going to guess it'll be a wash. The only way to tell is do it and see. AL cylinders are easy to figure though, hop in with a full cylinder and get neutral, add about 6 lbs and you'll be a bit heavy. 4 lbs might work for you depending...
