So the image in the black band to the right is similar to what would be seen by a regular fish finder except that it is rotated 90 degrees and in greater detail, correct?

That’s pretty much correct. The sonar ping on a conventional bottom machine fires down. My side-scan setup sends pings out at a 60 degree angle on each side. Solid structure appears light colored. Vertical relief casts a shadow. The black area represent the water column below the sonar fish or each side.

Thanks, for some reason I thought that the side scan machines (either like yours or the Hummingbird type) were blind directly below and could only see off to the side.

Humminbird has a new update that shows a 3d image below the boat.

I went to the bottom many years ago at the Tenneco. There was a strange species of grouper that I'd never seen before, it was longer proportionally than most. I was only there for a minute or so and had to decompress for about 15 minutes before the computer would let me surface... it was my deepest. Vis was about 50'... beautiful!

Cool. My wife and I dive the bottom of the Tenneco about once a month (on rebreathers). It is one of my favorite dives. We sometimes see Warsaw grouper on our deeper dives. I have not spotted one on the Tenneco, but I wonder if you saw one of those guys.
