Finally on the water - some shots

This was Oban at the weekend and after getting 'blown out' by a serious sea fret the week before in Teeside I was really pleased to be able to try out my new lowrance.
I am still not sure of the best settings etc and did get quite a lot of scatter - which I am nor sure whether this was due to the sea conditions (a lot of 'debris/ alage' in the water) ,,,, or simply my incompetence
I did find that the 800 Hz was really poor so not certain what I am doing wrong
Anyway - very pleased and definitely needed to try it out on wrecks I know before even hoping to find somnething different.

Advice from more experienced users would be much appreciated

Jeff

Breda, Hispania, Madam Alice and Anna Bhan

Really pleased but absolutely no use in expecting the manual to tell you how to use it. Perfect for us men-folk: just press a few buttons and pray
