We are out playing with our new equipment (and enjoying New Caledonia) while we wait for weather to sail to New Zealand. One of our new toys is ForwardScan sonar. Below is a short video that shows a coral bombie that wasn’t all that visible to the naked eye (the video has been enhanced to show the bombie better than it appeared in real life).
This was only our second outing with the sonar but I’m really happy with it.
Completing the new equipment one-two punch is the ability to display satellite charts, made from SASPlanet and Insight Map Creator, directly on the chartplotter. (I’ll post a how-to video soon. It’s been a steep learning curve but I think I’ve finally got it down.) Goodbye anchoring stress! -Rich
