Good point on the cladding - if I can't make that work, there's always LimeyLinda's practical suggestion.
I think the general consensus is 'don't worry about it', so I wont!
Thanks everyone for the good feedback.
If you get a fishfinder and see a fish on it, can you take a picture of the screen. I maintain no one has ever seen a real fish on a fishfinder and if a fishy icon pops up on the screen, its only a dummy fish icon programmed in by the manufactures.
