Hi Ken, It’s not the ones on the surface you have to worry about, they only go with a slight bang………….It’s the ones below the surface you have to worry about. And also I have just installed 50 barrels which I can release from my barge, they are slow sinking with a timer to allow me time to get clear.....................Now these will clear the lake of sub's and any blanket weed that have sliipped the net. {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Regards Dave.

If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
