Lowrance Structure Scan

Keep the images coming. I'm thinking of this for diving also and so far the images are looking pretty impressive.

Your settings on the contrast is quite low and still You get a very high detailed picture for the side scan. Do You run with higher brightness for the screen to receive more detailed picture ? I mean either You increase the contrast and then reduce on the screen brightness or visa versa. What is the best solution You have found ?

Fitting sidescan transducer

I am in the process of replacing my Furuno 4100 echo sounder with a HDS7. The echo sounder transducer will be fitted on the transom by the middle strake in the hull. I am considering fitting the sidescan unit directly on the strake in front of the echo sounder transducer without the bracket. Anybody have any experience/thoughts about doing it this way? The reason for this is to avoid too much clutter on the transom, but I am a bit concerned about turbulence from the side scan thingy interfering with the echo sounder at speed, and if the deadrise of the hull will limit the side scan's view to starboard.

problem

I sow Bruce and Diver side scans and I'm impress. On my Parker 900 Baltic I've got to HDS-10 with structure scan but in my opinion it doesn't work properly! Look at this screens. On both are wrecks. What can be wrong ? It's meeter of settings or hardware - on this film you can see how is transducer mounted : . Dealer who sold me this - they only quest

Hi Jacek,

The ducers sit just fine I think. The structure scan one could be angled a bit further down though. I go out diving tomorrow, will post a picture of my ducer setup.

I dont think there is anything wrong. What kind of wreck is it?

1. pic:
Pretty deep scan. To low contrast, I would crank it up to 85%. I also looks as if the water is not calm. The bottom structure bounge quite a lot. That doesnt improve the result. Try to get it on the side scan also. It seems quite big that wreck.
2. pic:
A small wreck, probably wooden, gone into the sea bed. Also a bit deep for the 800khz. Tune up the contrast here also or switch to 455Khz. You will not get anything on the the side scan of such a small wreck when you go diretcly over it. Thats why you have it on the down scan only.

And remove those depth lines!

1. Down scan, german steam trawler WW1. 40m long
2. Side image, same as 1.
3. Side image, 65m long steamer, sank in 1886 (bubbles from the diver at the stern)
4. Down scan, 68m long steamer, sank in 1896 ( a bit to much contrast). From right you see the anchor on the bow, the front mast 5m high and the davids at the bridge section.

Thank you for information I'll tray to make corrections. First wreck is Abilla 25m long tug sank during WWII, second remains of Stuttgart German hospital ship bombing by B-17 in harbour (here film http://www.balticquest.pl/angielski/film4.html) . I'm waiting for your setup. In your opinion when change frequency to lower, how deep ?

Pics from todays divetrip as promised. The skimmer does not sit at the best location. Looses track above 10 knots. But have a lack of sprayrails!

Wreck images is from a german steamer, sank in 1916, 70m long.

Regards
Henrik
