I go out frequently with a dive boat and its crew will gladly help folks with their weight pockets if desired, but do not expect divers to remove their weight belts and hand them to the crew. In circumstances that require such, I'm sure it would be done.

I've never heard of this being a PADI standard. However given the physical condition of some new divers, it is not surprising that they might request such special treatment.

I side with Capt. Tim on this one.
