Scout is a revolutionary forward scanning fish finding device.
Whether looking for suspended walleye, mooching for salmon or
trying to find schools of bait, the Sea Scout will show you
what lies ahead. With a single transducer, the Sea Scout
scans a moving beam over a 90 degree arc back and forth across the
bow of the boat, like a searchlight, with forward ranges up to
1,200 feet, and simultaneously operates as a full-function
downlooking fish finder. Serious sport fishermen can now scan the
area in front of their boat and steer directly to suspended fish,
schools of bait and other underwater targets.
operate, the Sea Scout allows you to observe areas in front
of and directly underneath your boat simultaneously on a clear,
split screen. Using the convenient front panel control, the Sea
Scout allows you to adjust both scan width and direction for
optimum forward coverage, and a forward alarm can be easily set to
warn of approaching fish, schools of bait or other submerged
objects. Plus, the Sea Scout's bottom looking mode provides
a full set of conventional fish finder features.

choose to turn off the Auto-Range in order to see further than the
actual bottom. This will enable the sonar pulse to bounce off the
bottom and continue on. The targets ahead will reflect back to the
unit and allow you to see a much greater distance ahead. Many
users have experimented and found that the unit allows for a wide
range of uses. The unit is not designed to provide forward
"bottom" image, but will provide a bottom chart mode directly
under the boat. Some limitations are observed in very shallow
product "borrows" the latest in medical ultra-sound technology and
provides a virtual "underwater radar" display. With its ability to
look forward and scan from side to side, the Sea Scout can
identify suspended fish, obstructions, or even your cast lure. We
have even tested the unit looking backward and it will show fish
approaching your bait or chum line from the rear (it will not
operate through cavitation).
sweeps a 12 degree cone in a 90 degree arc from side to side. The
sweep is angled downward from the transducer at 20 degrees. It
also provides a standard downward looking sounder for a bottom
Ease of Operation
Sea Scout offers numerous split screen modes easily
accessed with only five buttons. The product is truly intuitive
and user friendly. Any adjustments on screen can be modified
simply by using the large Beam Control dial.
Choice of Views
Sea Scout viewing can be forward, downward, or a combination
of both. The scan can be reduced to a fraction of the 90 degree
side to side sweep and then "steered" anywhere between 45 degrees
port to 45 degrees starboard. Also available is a bottom chart
mode and GPS/Loran track plotter (NMEA 0183).
Along with the traditional split screen and navigational
split screen (an industry innovation first introduced by
Interphase in 1988) the Sea Scout offers forward
looking display data information or a combination of bottom,
track, or data screens.
Forward Seeking View
The Sea Scout offers recreational boaters a never
before available scan of suspended targets up to 1,200' forward
of the boat.
Like all of today's Interphase products, the Sea
Scout is built by hand in the USA, each unit is bench tested
for a minimum of 12 hours, and guaranteed waterproof.
Affordable forward scanning sonar for the recreational
boater, the revolutionary Sea Scout is packed with
valuable depth sounder features and Loran/GPS ready plotting in
addition to its unique solid state forward scanning features.
