Objective: Remove and replace the weight system while you are on the surface.
Value: When boat diving, especially from RIBs, all dive gear will be handed up to the boat crew before you climb on board. Replacing the weight belt on the surface includes readjusting the belt or removing or adding weight when in the water. You may need to give the support person the belt to make adjustments, and then, he or she will give it back you.
How It’s Done: Because there are so many different weight systems available on the market today, your instructor will demonstrate the most appropriate method for this skill.
