1) Speed readings from a paddle can be miles out. Mine varies a knot depending on whether the bottom is clean. It might need calibrating. The display unit often has a calibration routine.

2) most depth displays have an adjustable offset. Someone may have set it to read depth under the keel. I prefer true depth. I calibrated my offset using a bucket with a brick in it, and a line attached.
