I think we may just be reading TDI_2's post differently-
"What's wrong with TDI_2 calcs? He assumes every 217lbs + 100lbs gear + 14lbs diver will displace same amount of water and that's not true."
From my reading he is giving an example of a specific diver's neutrally boyant saltwater weight-
"Sample neutrally buoyant ocean diver:
217 lbs Body weight
100 lbs Scuba tech gear dry weight w/ filled tanks
14 lbs Lead weighting with drysuit"
From my understanding if a diver finds his specific neutrally buoyant weight for saltwater he should be able to use TDI_2's calculation to find his neutrally boyant wright for fresh water.
