My new can light is 1Kg negatively buoyant.

Am I right in thinking I should take 1kg of lead off to compensate for this?

The Salvo figures are in fresh don't forget, so you'll need to adjust that for the strange salty stuff.

U like it ? :D.

OK.

So I treat it like a stage and don't count it into my weighting.

That probably means it is about neutral.

I am impressed so far. I will get it into the sea tomorrow all being well.

Nooooooooooo!

If it's 1Kg -ve in fresh water it will be a whole 3% less bouyant, so you're looking at .97Kg -ve.

Lose a kilo from your weighting. Do not treat it as a stage, I'm afraid your lovely shiney new light should be considered emergency ditchable weight.
