For depth measurements from the waterline, accurately
measure the vertical distance from the face of the trans-
ducer and the waterline of the boat. This measure-
ment will then be entered into the Keel Offset function
as a positive (+) number. See Figure E17.

The Keel Offset function adjusts the digital depth read-
out to display depth reading from either the waterline
or the keel (lowest point) of the boat, instead of from
the location of the transducer which is usually some-
where in between. This permits optimum transducer
location and depth readouts suited to your needs.

SET has been set to -2 feet. The last drawing shows

To determine the value to enter into the KEEL OFFSET
setting, first decide whether depth from the waterline
or depth from the keel is desired. Measurements will
need to be made for the location desired.
For depth from the keel of the boat, accurately mea-
sure the vertical distance between the face of the trans-
ducer and the keel of the boat. This measurement will
then be entered into the Keel Offset function as a nega-
tive (-) number. See Figure E16.
