On two-generators or more; I have experienced much difficulty getting my streamers to sink/present well due to the force of the current. I have used intermediate sinking line but it did not seem to work well. I think I will try a complete sinking line next and see if it works any better.

I am glad Rod/Adam/David gave their insight on this topic as it has been one that has giving me trouble on high water flows.
