I did want to point out that this Contest is not limited to just Side Imaging Views Only!  It is an open contest and any view that you think is deserving of being recognised should be entered.

OK, lets start posting some images.  Even if you submitted to the SI T-Shirt Contest, you can submit your images again!

Good Luck to all!

jseasor,

Nice picts but I will have to remind everyone that they need to be snapshots from the HB unit itself.  If you play the files back on the unit you can take these same snapshots and submit those!

Thanks,

Terry, these are some great shots, but I am going to have to limit the contest to images captured directly from the unit. 

If you play the file back on your unit, you can take a snapshot with this same structure.

Thanks,

Hi, greetings from Slovakia, 2 weeks ago I have found ship wreck in our local river just very near my favourite fishing spot. It looks to be some 50 - 60 m long ship. Kind of iron ship for transporting of raw material . The shots were taken during some experimenting with new settings after 4.75 upgrade, so probably not the perfect ones. Enclosed are 2: ship + ship's captain tower.

I took this picture with my 997c si on april 17 at lake nockamixon in bucky county Pa. Its a bridge in about 19 feet. I had the si senisty on auto. chart speed at 3. You can really see the good detail of the bridge. The lake was flooded like in 1973.

Down imaging view of 125 acre lake with a 60 foot hole.  Outside temperature was 90 degrees this day and in the spawn/ pre-spawn stages.  Fishing activity was low around the edges so went to check out the deep water.  The abundance of fish and their patterns on the display made for an interesting mosaic.

In its prime the Countess of Erne was a paddle steamer, but was used in later life as a coal hulk in Portland harbour. It sank in 1935 after its moorings broke lose. The site is within the shelter of the harbour, parallel to the northeast wall next to the white lighthouse - there is usually a fixed shot marking the stern which is the north end of the wreck. The wreckage lies upright and is still intact, although much of the superstructure has gone.

In this picture you can see a lobster trap and rope dropped on the wreck!

Enjoy, my first picture posts!

This pic was taken with a 997 si.  Sensitivity is set on 12.  Downscan is on the left and the side image with the left and right sides showing.  This is a bridge on Bob Sandlin, TX.  Bass stack up on this in the hot summer.
