MHK thought he knew something about it when he stated:
>...you need to consider a crushed neoprene -v- a trilam. The neoprene will compress at depth so as to limit any potential bouyancy characterisitics.The other comment that EINS seems to think is irrelevant, is to also distribute your overall weighting so as to balance the weight in that you will have enough ditchable weight in the event you need to ditch but yet still retain some so as to preclude you from rocketing to the surface should you ditch.<

What he refers to (ditch stragegies) is relevant by itself but out of context from where it was taken. This issue was originally contained in a subthread that asked how to adjust buoyancy, period. It was not about trim or ditch strategies and never specified as that, therefore it was not relevant--outiside of the agreed context given at http://diver.net/bbs/messages/3271.shtml
