Fantastic prompt response BBB. Thanks a lot. I will have to activate the account I created some while ago at le pecheur.

Buoyancy issue brought a smile as I recalled using my Orvis stripping basket (with waist pack in it and rod across it) as a float when crossing a channel that was a bit deeper than I could happily cope with. No problem until a couple of 2m plus lemon sharks idled by as I 'bounced' on tip toe.

Thanks again.

Simon
