Errr if you are planning to navigate using some kind of onscreen electronic chart and rely on the depths displayed there here is a note of caution heard from the owner of a boat in a boatyard waiting for the damage surveyor to arrive.
"Well the chart plotter showed us in 42 feet of water when we went aground on the reef. "
Rely on a working depth sounder and set the alarm!
