Up the top left you can see a zoomed in pick of the Gemini wreck using sidescan (Humminbird). Imagine tilting your head to the right and look at the pick as if you were underwater 50m away from the boat and the boat was shining off light. So the dark bits are shadows.

 

So you can make out the shape of the gemini resting on the sea floor. You can also make out two or three things sticking off the top of the ship (top left of the wreck). I dont know if they're part of the wreck or schools of fish. 

You can also see the rivulets in the sand around the wreck.

is a sore neck from tilting my head to the right.  Sorry I'm not seeing it.  Are the pics plan or elevation view?

 the shadow in the top left corner of the red box that runs from top left down diagonally to the right is the "shadow" of the barge. Imagine someone is shining a light at it from the right, the shadow is behind the barge just like if it was sitting in a torch beam. You can make out the outline of the barge just to the right of the shadow.
The screen view is as if you are looking down from above.

Yeah, I can see it, but have sounded over the Gemini a lot so know what it looks like. The Gemini sticks out like dogs balls on a standard sounder, and whilst the side scan does show it  (just), not sure it adds  any value like it does  in shallower water, where it appears to be quite useful.

Well, its still interesting

Well, its still interesting and great for finding ground. Its cool to see a pic of the actual ship itself. Plus, on the first past I actually missed it anyways, but stuck out on the sidescan ;) But then, if you know where it is, it doesnt help much :p.
