  • Starboard:  Sonar head location starboard of boat center.
  • Forward: Sonar head location forward of boat center.
  • Vertical: Sonar head location relative to waterline (positive).
  • Yaw, Pitch, Roll:  Sonar head rotations relative to forward and vertical.  Enter values determined by patch testing.
