Jump in your neighbor's pool. Take as much air in as comfortable (do not over-inflate, and don't pop any veins), and hold it. If you sink, nice job! If you float, you still have work to do.

I am pretty jazzed at the fact that I went from being a floater to a sinker a few months ago thanks entirely to CF.

Are you a sinker or a floater?

Doesn't the speed in which you sink help determine a little more accurately? lol :-)

Probably :-) And I think men have an unfair advantage due to less .. ahem.. baggage.

Sinker..never thought about the rate I sink but I feel like it's pretty fast.

I sink. I have plenty of fat. In my case it's due to the size/density of my legs. Damn my legs. If it weren't for them I'd float.

Well, your sink rate will increase the deeper you go, but will quickly reach terminal velocity in about 10' or less of water.

As far as "package" sizes, that should be in a separate thread and I vote Frank and Veronica as moderators (or agitators, as the case may be!)

I've always sank like a piece of granite, even with a healthy belly!
