this is actually providing a collision zone of only 2 meters either side of the GPS antenna If the GPS antenna is mounted on the port side of the vessel and you specified a Safe Width of 4 meters you

Multiple echoes D16384 Arc True echo Side echoes D16423Indirect Echoes Blind SectorsThere are several types of indirect echoes or ghost images These Obstructions such as funnels and masts near the radar have the appearance of true echoes but in general they may obstruct the radar beam and cause radar shadows or blindare intermittent and poorly defined sectors If the obstruction is relatively narrow there will be a reduction of the beam intensity though not necessarily a complete cutoff However for wider obstructions there may be a total loss of False echo True echo True echo signal in the shadow area There may also be multiple echoes which extend behind the obstruction Blind sector effects can normally be minimized by careful selection of the scanner site prior to installation Sea Clutter Radar returns from waves around the vessel can clutter the centre of the radar picture making it difficult to detect real targets Such sea clutter usually appears as multiple echoes on the

transducer frequency Size of the targetVessel speed The larger the target the larger the return on the fishfinder displayThe shape of the target changes along with your speed Slower The size of a fish target is also dependent upon the size of the fishsspeeds return flatter more horizontal marks Higher speeds cause swim bladder rather than its overall size The swim bladder varies inthe target to

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
