Default any hds screenshots of wrecks?

I have an HDS-7 with SS
been trying reef fishing in NJ sea girt and Axel Carlson. Not sure if i have my sonar calibrated just right, as what I am seeing on the screen seems to small to be a wreck. I am wondering if any one has some sonar and or structure scan shots I can see to compare against what I see. I will hopefully be out this weekend to post a few of my screens. Both of these reefs are water between 70 and 85 ft deep

Try doing a search as I know there is quite a few screen shots of wrecks using the HDS units.

thanks for that, I was concerned that on my screen the wrecks looked too small, is there a way to figure out how much area you are covering on the downscan for example the length of that ship you are showing

Use the cursor pad in the sonar screen, place a waypoint at each end of the wreck, waypointing each end also helps see how the wreck is lying on the chart, then you can figure out your drift over it to maximise bait time over the wreck!

There is also a measure function too so you can measure point to point, down up, side to side or on an angle, anyway you like.

Take that, Garmin! I've had Xrays that didn't come out that clear.

Amazing.

That is exactly what I said and then I saw your reply. Funny.

Great posts. I've never seen this tech as of late and it's very impressive. Wonder what it looks like over Shrewsbury Rocks or similar widespread reef.

Thanks again, J
