This was the last straw and I banned solid weights from the RIB.
If folk aren't going to excercise some care with what they do with kit they they aren't coming on. I am not particularly precious about the boat but I think a minimum of care is called for if you are a guest on a boat.
Shot belts don't really cause any damage so no shot belt=no ride on the RIB.

Nope, everyone uses twinsets which lie flat on the deck plus we never go out with more than four divers, half the number that the equivalent club boat would take for the same size hull.

I don't dive anymore so don't have much experince of twinsets but don't these cause damage.
I suspect techie divers take more care over their gear hence not as much damage?

Nope, lie them flat on the deck behind the console and they are fine, two sets lie fine between the tubes with two in front. The bladders and boots stop anything being damaged.
You can see two sets on my old RIB, it could take four sets between the outboard and the console....
