Re: Is there even a need for high power depth transducers OR CHIRP?
Iíve not yet sailed in coral-head infested waters, but I have been in areas where the depths can change rapidly (North Channel, Georgian Bay). Iíve used a fish finder style sounder which I really like. The visual trending is great. And you can read the bottom to some degree.
But none of this matters to me when Iím in 50í or more of water. Forward scanning sonar might be useful, but the ability to see 500 feet down is irrelevant to me.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
