Check to see if the face of the Side Imaging transducer is parallel with the water's surface.

The transducer is mounted in a transdiver shield and saver off the jackplate

If you make any trips to fork over the near future, holler at me. I have one of the same units, be happy to cruise out in yours and see if I can dial it for you. Although I will say, those vahrenburg videos taught me most of what I know. Might be able to fix yourself after watching them.
he's ready
