I just dug deeper into my stash, and pulled out another 3 lb hard weight, 2 10 lb? hard weights, and 3 weight belts.  The approximately 10 lb weights have the set screw in them.  It is an original belt for me dating back 40 or so years when I was wearing a 7 mil farmer John and diving double 80's on wrecks off of Long Island.  That will also go in the truck.  Ed

Ed I hope you truck can handle all those weights! :teeth: ;) :diver:

 

Some recent surgery removed a few rocks from my head, so the weight should balance out some.  See you in a few days buddy.

Okay it looks like our resourceful members have come through for Week Two!  See summary below and reply if I overlooked something.
NOTE: Kathryn, Patty ad perhaps another diver may be 1-2 pounds over what they requested. South Florida diving deals with almost daily moderate to sometimes strong currents so diving just a smidge heavy is preferred.
:diver:

Kamala aka WreckWench - Has own weights
Dawne aka DiverDawne - I will bring extras, two 5's and two 2's
     (less two 5's and two 2's for Patty = 0)
Brad aka dive_sail_etc - Has own weights, three 5's, four 4's, four 2's and two 1's
     (less two 2's for himself, two 4's and two 2's for Kat and two 5's and two 4's for Steve = one 5 and two 1's)
Ed aka Diver Ed - Has own weights, also bringing
  1 - 6lb soft weight
  8 - 3lb hard weights
  2 - 1lb hard weights
  2 - 2lb soft weights
    (less four 3's, two 2's and one 1 for Pat = one 6, four 3's, and one 1)
  I will also have 4 extra plastic totes for dive gear as well as 4 extra beach towels.
  I do have an extra foam pocket weight belt that is in the truck as well, if someone is in a crunch and they are lucky enough for it to fit.
Pat aka Bluetang - 16 - 18 lbs. hard or soft. If anyone has a 1lb I would be grateful. Weird but 17lbs seems to be my sweet spot.
      (Ed has four 3's, two 2's and one 1)
Steve aka soonerdiver - I will probably need 18 to 20 lbs of weight.
      (Brad has two 5's and two 4's, also a few 12oz fishing weights to augment / fine tune)
Patty aka N.J. Turtle - I have a weight integrated BC and need 13 pounds; 4 pounds in each pocket, 2 pounds in each chest pocket. One pound whereever it fits.
      (Dawne has two 5's and two 2's for 14 pounds evenly distributed)
Kat aka SirenKat - I will probably need 10 to 12 lbs.
     (Brad has two 4's and two 2's)
