    Thank you very much for posting that me Wayne!!!
    It is at the bottom of a boat ramp and my thoughts exactly are that it's a car. I called the local police and they said they would see if they felt like investigating it or not. I couldn't believe their response. But I wanted to get others thoughts on what they thought it was.
    Thanks everyone...

    If it is a car, why is it translucent in the SI view? It should be a stronger return since it is made of metal, right?

    That is a pixelated photo, not a unit screen shot.

    Hell it's only in 14 foot of water, take a swim and see for yourself . Just kidding, it does look like a vehicle though in the SI views but the DI Views not so sure.

    Looks like an insurance job to me! Haha. It does look like a car of some sort. Surprised the police responded like that.

    Yes, it was a screen shot that I used my cell phone to take a picture of so I could get Wayne's input on, since he she's tons of images all the time..

    Thanks again Wayne, you are such a valuable asset to us normal folks on here!!!

    It looks better in the units memory. These shots were taken from a cell phone of the images in the memory..
    it's still not as sharp as I'd like, but I just started using these Onix units, but I live the image quality you van get from them..

    If it has been in the water a long time silt and algae with absorb much of the sound waves and take the brightness out due to lack of roughness and hardness which is crucial for a good image. If Skeeter can go back, and get further away, and image from several angles, from the target a better image will be obtained. Being very close will distort your return.

    I believe the image is weaker on side vision because I believe I went directly over it when I took the screen shot.
