I know one person who has an autopilofcr*p fitted to a RIB, never thought it was a good idea.
Is your mate based on the Clyde?

Keep posting Bruce! Guessed it was the Breda before I clicked on it. The other two were at different frequencies does this make a big difference? the 800kHz shot is a cracker.

Doesn't it work? He's putting a lot of work into his...

No, he's here. He does a lot of Proton Mag stuff and seabed mapping. If he's good, I'll bring him to the IOM and you can talk Wreckish stuff

All messing aside - nice work with the Sidescan - keep the updates coming

No, it does work. Its just I am not sure that bombing along with an auto steering mech on a fast RIB is really such a good idea.
For searches I can see its use, sit and have a cuppa while the boat drives itself around searching, I could cope with that.

Few more.
Breda starboard side view, bow to right.
Heather island in Kerrera sound running from bottom North to top South. Showing from top of cliff to about 40m deep
Thalia in 52m and shows the bow speared into the seabed as it is in reality very well.

It has its limitations but for the cost it is very good. A larger screen would be useful but would have made it too expensive for me at the moment.
I am hoping Henrik comes back on to give me any benefit of his experience using it as he has had his longer.
The images being put up are all generated over the weekend on wrecks and areas I have actually dived to get an idea of how to work it and understand what it is showing.
Now to use it for finding new stuff.................

I have started a thread in the gallery, basically I hope that if I show mine others will show theirs
I would like to see what result others are getting to improve use and see what they are capable of. I think these units will become more common very soon and in fact know of one or two folk near here considering buying based on what they have seen of mine.
