Hi. I am hoping to dive in the UK using a Scubapro 4mm neoprene drysuit. I am 6' tall and weigh around 15 stone. I will be using a 15 litre steel cylinder with an Aqualung Axiom BCD. The under suit will be fairly thin 2 piece thermals. I have been diving abroad for over 20 years, but need a rough starting point for inland fresh water diving. Can anyone help with a rough bouyancy starting point?
Cheers.

Start with between 8 to 10 kg. best have an empty (50 bar ish ) cylinder go to 2 metres depth and check to see if you are slightly negative buoyant so sinking slowly. If you sink easily have weights you can put down to get yourself to the slight state if you are slighltly positive have to hand some 1 kg weights to add. when you go in the sea remember to add a couple of kg.
