This gizmo is not optical in nature, in the truest sense, but optical is related.

sorry for being cryptic, but I think you'll understand when it is discovered.

Thanks ScottM. Just back from the airport, my youngest son was flying back home this morning. Thought I'd drop in and make a few guesses while he was getting his stuff together before we left.

See ya next Saturday!

I can kick myself for skipping the Gizmo Quiz this
week. We just finish installing a multibeam echosounder on one of our survey ships. Although it was an Simrad EM 3000, they all look basically the same. Could have had that one in 15 seconds.

That is exactly what I was worried about...someone would know what it was without any searching!

>someone would know what it was without any searching!

And here I've been simply guessing....

Hey, how 'bout some tips as to which Engines and particular strategies you all use?

Guessing really taxes my brain...
