I am still pretty new to sailing and the built-in depth
finder on my 26' Chrysler does not work
. The boat
is on an inland lake, and for the most part knowing the depth
is not necessary for pleasure sailing around. However, the other day while choosing a spot to drop anchor
I was wishing I had a depth finder.
What is the easiest way to know the depth of the water
you are in?
Is there an "app" available for my phone
that would tell me "you are right here on this lake and it is x' amount deep with current water
How difficult is it to install a new depth finder/fish finder system?
Are there any convenient/inexpensive portable depth finder systems you know of or have experience with? I saw some that you toss a little floating sonar device overboard
and get data through your phone
or a receiver, called "wireless fish
Any advice is appreciated!
