Re: Forward Looking Sonar

I agree.  If you're in mud or sand and in a place where you know the depth is going to be fairly level, you can move a bit faster.  But, in this case you don't an FLS to scare you...  Just look at the depth meter.  I took out my FLS transducer by hitting a log about 5 miles off the coast of Columbia close to Magdalena River.   What a bummer.

But, I love my Echo Pilot, especially I'm in badly charted shallow waters with hard stuff around.

Happy Sailing,
