Long time I haven't posted in this forums... anyway, I need your help... BADLY!

Soon at the end of next month, I'll be doing a trip to Destin, FL with family, and my main goal there is SALTWATER FISHING (from all inshore fish to blue crabs). I have an EAGLE SUPRA PRO ID portable fishfinder for the past two years or so, and my very first one to own, and about to use for the first time next month.

I've being reading the instructions of it completely (almost memorized them), but there's something I don't know and it doesn't show in the instruction manual: the TRANSDUCER has a "U" shape like most of the transducers out there.

The question is... WHICH SIDE OF THE TRANSDUCER should be facing FORWARD??? Is it the CURVED side of the transducer, or the FLAT side? Reason I ask is that I have no idea of all this fishfinder's science... at least in the hardware sense. Please HELP!

It makes no difference with that kind of sonar unit.
If you were to mount it on the boat, then you would want the most pointed end facing forward.
