HDS Deepwater performance
Back in December I uploaded some images of my Bro in laws HDS in 280m but they were not clear. I managed to get out today and took a couple of pics of the screen. We managed a solid bottom trace in 490m but it was slow and as soon as you moved I lost the picture. I did however get some much clearer shots than those previously posted.
I know that there are a lot of people out there that want to know what a HDS will do. These shots are from a HDS with a 50/200 600w tranny. Note that these shots are when the sounder is running on full auto. We could sound around at 4 knots but above this and the picture would breakup. Next step is a bigger tranny through the hull and lots of practice reading and understanding what I am seeing.
