My new camo weightbelt WDYT?

Found this last night in La Jolla. Pretty good camo to be lost for this long and not found.

If anyone's grandfather can can tell me where they lost it, I will be happy to return it.

Looks like the rest of the diver was picked clean by reef fish!

After I chipped some of the growth off of them, I saw that all of the weights are King Neptune weights. I did a bit of research on the weight and found your post about them. Small world.

Sounds like a filthy operation.
