I calculate a RED and YELLOW sounding for each leg during my route planning. I have it written on my chart card, and I then grease pencil that on my dash next to the chart plotter. I'll have to see if my chart plotter supports entering 'alarm' soundings ... seems fairly easy thing for a device like that to do.

Is your transducer through hull, or in hull?

I had an inhull that wasn't properly mounted, and was actually using the residual bilge water as it's connection to the hull. On plane, that water collected further aft in the hull, and now the transducer had air under it.

Through hull.

Most answers are point to what I was assuming caused the the outage - turbulent flow near the transducer ... so that's something I'm not going to be able to change. Just need to be more careful and go slow when I'm not sure of the depth.

Thanks all for your replies.
