Can you mark them with a cursor, then go back at do another look, or is it a reverse course blind search off the track on your gps.

That's scary cool.

Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. I took my boat out today with my side scan I didn't find anything like that just some big piles that I marked. I got the humminbird 998c si I like it a lot but sill have things to figure out. I forgot my gps #'s today go figure.

I just put the cursor on an object and the software displays the GPS coordinates. It can do this while scanning or during play-back at home.

How deep is the water where you are scanning? How does the unit work in 100'?
Dang, I might need one of these!

We were just motoring around the bay testing out the gear in in 15-50' of water. The max depth depends on the side-scan model and which parameters you have set. My Lowrance "Structure Scan" is good down to around 130'.

lol - A good side-scan unit can cost more than the boat.

Like $20,000 is the cheaper unit by Fisher. Don't even ask what a Kline costs...
