Mike,

Just remembered, one of the Lowrance tutorials on youtube mentioned taking auto zoom off and log all outputs at the highest bit rate/sampling rate. We have found that you seem to get a lot more detail if you screen shot something rather than taking a capture from a logged file.

Though to be fair it might just be us not recording the log file properly.

Starfish

Had a play wit the starfish sidescan sonar on Sunday at a local pond.
Attached is a scan of a small canoe stern cobble with wheelhouse.
Image is a little shakey as I was in my kayak but still learning with this thing!

I have to confess Simon B, the wreck is only in about 4m of water. I had the fish 2m down which is about level, (or just above) the wheelhouse roof.

It was sunk many years ago as a attraction for local divers.

P555 West Bay 2012

Viewing the recording from Lowrance HDS5 on a PC and then taking a screenshot
P555 sub in West Bay and then a couple from Oban
I have found sidescan quite limited by depth - but the downscan really does give a good image and helps identify wrecks from rocks !
I wish I had a console like the Yanks and could have a 10" screen

I have been delighted with the Sonar and StructureScan and the quality of the Navionics mapping against Garmin. Structurescan is amazing - In my 'annual' holiday to Paxos Greece I had been looking for a wreck for 5 years with my normal (and good) Garmin 340C. This was an intact wreck on a reef top at 17m, ovehanging with the prop at 42m - perfect until the winter storms 'moved' it. I had tried a number of searches by diving - following the debris trail down/across, but giving up at 60m and delighted SWMBO with trawling with the echo every year to find nothing.

Well, thanks to technology I located it in 2012 - though a tad deep for me ! The bottom on downscan is 74.5 m.
Piccy here - the record function is ace; much easier to view on the laptop afterwards and with all depths & GPS identifiable ( but not on the screenshot here) Look at the normal sonar scan v structuredownscan. This is a screenshot off my PC using Sonar View on the SL2 recording. Using the GPS position from the recording I was easily able to relocate in 2013 and decided given the size /height of the wreck had a go and successfully dived it in 2013,,, & 14. You can see the crows nest on the downscan image :-)

Hope it goes well - West Bay is stunning for the quality of wrecks isn't it ,,,, plenty of super-sized crustaceans too
