I've seen a lot of posts regarding weighting. Most people know what they need for a given situation, based on dive log entries. But newer divers might benefit from sneaking a peek at other's logs.

Why not allow members to post to a database showing; height, weight, sex, wetsuit thickness, fresh or saltwater, type of cylinder, and the amount of weight that they use to reach neutral buoyancy?

That way, let's say, a female who is 5 feet tall and weighs 100 lbs, and wants to dive in saltwater in a 3 mil shorty, with an AL 80 can look at the database and plan to start with whatever worked for others.

Good idea Largo, I tried to upload mine but I built the spreadsheet on my Mac and the website doesn't like the file extension.

I think it would be useful for people who are switching wetsuit thickness, or cylinder size. I wonder how quickly the data would come in?
