Make sure the transducer is in the best position if it's a skimmer type. It needs to be touching clean water when planing. I had a right ar$e about with the Totalscan transducer on the F-rib, I ended up mounting it under the boat.



I've found my best sidescan images are between 5 and 10 knots. Also play with the contrast, colour and brightness.
Lots of good info on Bass boat central

If you like this sort of stuff, have a look at this link about the Richard Montgomery in the Medway.



Full report here.

The only thing stopping me is I don't have any external transducers. Mines are all in hull types so no external holes.....but this is tempting.

I rarely get anything as good on my Garmin DV unit. More to do with the total lack of anything interesting on the sea bed in the Solway Firth. All sand and silt. I once got a fantastic image of a small plant in the Whitehaven harbor though.

we were there a good few years back looking for a 7 tonne barge anchor found it in the end 16 hour day waiting on tide to get back in the harbour you can see the petal search pattern then the magnetometer deflection then its on the sounder the flukes are well down below sea bed very soft sand you have there did not retrieve it client was happy no risk to navigation.
