I think there were at least two issues raised in this thread, discussed

My informal comparison of 5.3.8 outputs with 5.3.7 suggests that depth is
now likely to be accounting for only the centreline survey shots, which I
like (although this could perhaps one day be a user selectable option-both
are useful for differing purposes?).

It seems to me that the splay shot statistics are still mixed in with the
centreline statistics- ie no change between 5.3.7 and 5.3.8. Perhaps this
was not the 'bug' referred to above, and I suspect it might require a lot of
work, but deserves consideration I think.
