This is a ski boat pic that was taken the first time on the water with my new 898 SI.

Thought I would try.  And yes, I ordered me a Raptor Cap today ( Thursday ).

This is such a great website!!

This is a depression created when a tree stump was dug up and relocated to make a fish attractor during the lake construction. The teeth marks of the backhoe bucket are clealy visible.

These images were captured on Smith Mountian lake in VA. I pulled into a cove and my screen was filled with Stripers. The two images were taken in 77 feet of water but the one images shows a depth of only 52.7 feet becuse there are so many stripers under the boat that the unit thinks the lake bottom is the school of fish. CRAZY!!! Minutes later the school broke on top of the water and continued for 20+ nimutes. It was exciting fishing!

These pics were recorded with a Humminbird 797C2 SI while exploring river Taipale, Viinijärvi, Finland, Aug. 12, 2009.

In first pics there appears to be an object resembling the prehistoric punts used by our ancestors. River Taipale is known as an old waterway passage.  The name 'Taipale' translates literally as 'Stage'

ila_rendered ila_rendered

Let us be even more optimistic and look at another pic with imagination: A curved and pointed object has a shape resembling a mammoth tusk, doesn't it..?

ila_rendered ila_rendered

We can of course right away reject a submerged tree as a too obvious and dull explanation for this object...  ;)

JHartikka,

Well, I expect that you are going to at least dive or snorkle down and verify what that object is!  It certainly looks like it could be a tusk, but we will never know until someone goes down and takes a look!

A complete tusk can bring many thousands here in the US!  Are you allowed to recover or remove the object?

Not enough curve to be a mammoth tusk from what I've seen.

Robert is right.  You should dive down upon it and see.  The depth is only 8 feet.  Also look at each end and it appears to have been dragged along the bottom. that will be the two darker lines.  Let us know what you find.

Tusk or tree?

Thank you for encouraging to look closer, Robert and Chuck! And yes, the grooves you pointed out appear like drag marks. However, like Countryboy states, the object looks much less curved than a mammoth tusk should be. On the other hand, SI is rather a distance scale than a photo. This object is imaged from rather steep angle from above which tends make objects partially straighten in a SI image.

Knowing how rare mammoth relics are in our moraine grounds that are thoroughly plowed by glacial periods it would be very lucky if this would be one of them. Alternatively, one could also imagine that an ancient traveller might have lost artifacts like this when his boat turned over in the river by bad fortune.

Regularly seen here are trees growing on sandy river and lake banks that use to lean gradually downwards when water rinses loose soil from between their roots. They try to grow upwards and curve their trunks until they finally are beaten by the advancing shore and torn away by ice. Sunken trees may be centuries or even thousands of years old - but still not desired like tusks. So, I am pretty afraid that I will lose my fascinating tusk daydream if I check the object... ;)

It may be a tree,  but what a find if you did drop down and find that elusive tusk.  wow, for years it would be mounted above your fireplace for viewing. and the rest of us would be jealous.
but we thank you for the pictures and the interest. 
that is what keeps the rest of us looking.   ;D..... :)..... ::)

For the first picture, I don't know what to make of this in otherwise a featureless lake.  The second shot is an underwater pipe as part of a phosphorus cleaning project.

I've found reducing my sensitivity and decreasing my chart speed has been rendering better images.  I'll have to do the firmware upgrade to see how my shallow water images improve.
