That was another boss. He had a 140'. We towed a 35' custom built express style sport fish behind that.

After I left they sank it while towing it in very rough seas south of the DR on their way to St. Martin from Panama.

IMO sounders that show numbers only rarely work reliably in muddy or disturbed shallow water. Fish finder OTOH have a rolling scan display that will continue to show some limited data even when the depth cant be calculated.
I last had a Garman FF split freq that worked well in the shallow, sandy often stirred up water of west FL ICW. The Damn thing did not have an offset either.

Just got back from a tow and played with the older 1650 Furuno while running...it only changed the digital depth number ...not the scrolling picture display.


Will have to see what my newer Raymarine will do...or not
