The whole thing here with ditch the belt, save your life and a friend will donate weights to the guy who ditches is kind of like the "here is a life jacket for you to use and return program" like we see for river rafters and swimmers provided at the camp hosts trailer or the life guard tower.

This a good idea, wonder how it could expand like the life jacket use and return program.

I'm in, if a fund is set up for reimbursing divers who ditch their belts.  Only request I have is that they share what happened with the rest of us so we can all learn from their experience.

I would be happy to contribute to this, either with cash or spare weights.  Great idea. A lifeguard at Salt Point once told me that most of the drowned divers they recovered were still wearing their weight belts and they probably would have survived if they'd dropped them.
