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

greyedout no fishfinder transducer is connected Interpreting the seabed using sonar It is important to understand how to correctly interpret the seabedHow the fishfinder works structure represented in the fishfinder displayThe fishfinder application uses a Digital Sounder Module DSM and The seabed usually produces a strong echoa suitable sonar transducer The DSM interprets signals from the The following images show how different seabed conditions aretransducer and builds up a detailed underwater view represented in the sonar displayThe transducer is located on the bottom of the boat it sends pulses A hard bottom sand produces a thin lineof sound waves into the water and measures the time it takes for thesound wave to travel to the bottom and back The returning echoesare affected by bottom structure and by any other objects in theirpath for example reefs wrecks shoals or fish A soft bottom mud or seaweed cover produces a wide line The dark layer indicates a strong signalColors are used on the display to indicate the strength of the returnsYou can use this information to determine the bottom structurethe size of fish and other objects in the water such as debris orair bubbles A rocky or uneven bottom or a wreck produces an irregular Note Some transducers include additional sensors to measure image with peaks and troughs water temperature andor speed D68552 The dark layers indicate a good echo the lighter areas indicate weaker echoes This could mean that the upper layer is soft and therefore allowing sound waves to pass to the more solid layer below It is also possible that the sound waves are making two complete trips hitting the seabed bouncing off the vessel then reflecting off the seabed again This can happen if the water is shallow the seabed is hard or the gain is set highUsing the fishfinder 179Factors influencing the sonar display Water depthThe quality and accuracy of the display can be influenced by a As sea depth increases signal strength decreases resulting in anumber of factors including vessel speed depth object size lighter onscreen image of the noise and 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 thicken and arch slightly until at fast speeds the mark size between different breeds of fishresembles a double vertical line Transducer depth The same target will appear differently when the transducerThe closer the target to the surface the larger the mark on screen frequency is changed The lower the frequency the broader the mark Note The depth of individual targets can be displayed by switching on the Target Depth ID in the fishfinder setup menu Clutter Background noise The number of target depths displayed is influenced by the fish The fishfinder picture may be impaired by echoes received from alarm sensitivity level floating or submerged debris air bubbles or even the boats movement This is known as background noise or clutter and is controlled by the gain modes The system will automatically control the gain settings according to the depth and water conditions

Dilution of Position HDOP a measure of GPS accuracy calculated from a number of factors including satellite geometry system errors in the data transmission and system errors in the GPS receiver A higher figure signifies a greater positional error A typical GPS receiver has an accuracy of between 5 and 15 m As an example assuming a GPS receiver error of 5 m an HDOP of 2 would represent an error of approximately 15 m Please remember that even a very low HDOP figure is NO guarantee that your GPS receiver is providing an accurate position If in doubt check the displayed vessel position in the

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
