Boeing 737

Post by 49thdiver » Sun Jun 10, 2007 12:37 am

My first shots of my boeing 737-200 sank as an Artificial reef January 14 2006
Chemainus BC Canada



Any suggestions on how to get some better images of this would be much appreciated.
I can see going slower might help, I am concerned that my transducser placement is not optimal.
It is placed on the center of the transom with two volvo legs either side. It may need to be lower in order to clear the legs completely or a little tighter to the hull I have it on a bracket about 4 inches awat from the hull. Ihave white line set on and am using 800khz. The first image is scanned from the deep side of the reef and the second from the shallow side.
Seeking new life and cool topology.
Going where no divers have gone before.

Try using the 455 kHz frequency. Slow the boat to lowest idle speed and slow the SI speed to slowest speed to capture full image on screen. I would make multi passes from a variety of angles. I use the GPS/SI combo to help navigate. When you get the image switch to full SI screen and capture. (I set my preset top-GPS only, middle- GPS/SI combo, bottom - SI only) this way I can switch easily and make adjust when I find what I need. I would set a waypoint with the cursor on the plane then use to navigate around the structure.

Small boat on bottom of Intracoastal

Post by rkneap » Sun Nov 04, 2007 2:41 pm

This was my first real attempt at capturing a sidescan image with my 797.
You can see by the track that I made many passes over the object before I found the best angle to capture its shape. It is clearly a small boat (I estimate about 10' long) sitting upright on the bottom in the middle of the ICW near Sebastian Florida.
Sorry about the low voltage warning. I replaced my fuse holder and this intermittent problem is now gone.

Any suggestions for improvements?


The second image here is of the same object, but from a different angle. I think it is dificult to determine wha the object is from this angle, thus marking a way point and trying it again from 90 degrees out can make a world of difference.

Love to fish, but don't know how.

Searching a 4-mot Bomber

Post by Merlin » Mon Dec 10, 2007 3:05 am

We get some years ago a story from old people that in a lake near Berlin a 4.-mot Bomber crash down.
Yesterday we search for it with a 997c modified with towfish for it and found remains of it.
We dive there with a two man submarine and take some pictures.

I liked your images of the Baltic wrecks.

Question-What were the settings on your respective units? I have been struggling without success to capture CLEARER and CRISPER images with my 987-never have been able to get to the point that some people have achieved. I dive as well so I am familiar with many of the targets I have scanned.

For example I have ssen images of trees posted (especially on the Yahoo forum) that are amazing-clarity is beautiful-clarity meaning detail-I've never been able to get to the point that you have with some of your posted images.

I use a 987 with a 997 transducer-was told it produces better images.

I run with:
Noise setting: minimal
Clutter setting: Minimal (1-2)
Frequency: 455

Transducer is perfectly horizontal, no weeds on it etc. Installed by Humm. dealer.

So the questio nis-how did you get some of those crisp images??? Any help appreciated.

1800 nautical miles, wow! You should be awarded for a "Miles and More" bonus!

But a nice shot of the wreck as well. 147 feet in salt water! I'm curious what I'll see in fresh water in my area. Can't wait to get the boat ready and the new unit out for testing.

Maybe I'll find that rumorous "Cognac-Bomber" in the upper part of the lake, hehe.
