  By that I mean, at any one time there are many streamers 8 to 10' long.
 I need a bigger top capacitance to hold back the  multiple streamers for
one or two longer breakouts. 
 My main concern is the current vs. voltage input.  I'll try a different
transformer today.

  I do have varible inductance, but there seems to be no "sweet spot" to
get the voltage up & current down.  This morning I've cranked up the
ballast and got the voltage way down, but current stays high.  I have
notice the capacitor charging current with no spark gap operation high. 
This is the first time I have used this high of capacitance.(0.173uF) 
This may just be a normal condition for this value?
