I have been reading this forum for a while and have gotten some really great tips from here. This is my first post, so hopefully it goes ok.
My question is, how do you determine how much weight to add to the belly of a crank to get it to float/suspend/sink? I was thinking of using a graduated cylinder and seeing how much water it displaces with all components and shoot for the total crank weight being the same weight as the displaced water. If i am thinking right this will give me a suspending crank, then either adding or subtracting weight will change it to a floater or a sinker. Does this sound like a good idea, or is there a way easier way to do this?
Thanks again for all the great information that has been posted on this forum.
