I donít know about adequate sonar systems but intuitively I would think about a fishfinder type of sounder, although I must admit not being familiar with this type of equipment. And I suppose car parking aids donít work under water .

Thanks a lot Paulo, I'd love to have this chart.

Best regards,


Tomorrow I will send it to you.

No, that is not a fish finder but a forward looking dept finder that is able to read the bottom forward till 100m. I think that will solve my problem.

I read about guys that used this kind of system to sail in uncharted places and they say very well about it. This is the more basic system and I think it will be enough for me. There are more sophisticated systems that present 3D resolutions and also read not only forward but also at an angle sideways. I see that you never heard about it, but then I guess you don't need it

Have a look at the basic system I want to fit:

FLS Bronze Forward Looking Sonar

and also have a look at the more powerful solutions:
