It identifies itself as Depthline(DEPCNT) I've tried various things, to get it like the others, especially in the Toolbox\Vector Charts Tab .

Only way found to get rid of it is to get rid of the lines altogether.

Happy..

That is the "Safety" contour, or the shallowest contour which is greater than or equal to your declared Safety Draft.

It's a safety feature, part of S52 Display standards. Inside this contour, there is at least one point where the depth is known to be less than your Safety Depth.

If you don't need this visual hint, you may increase your Safety Depth to a very big number.

Thanks, Dave!!!

PERFECT! I never would have figured that out! When 0 didn't work, I went looking in all the wrong places...
