  • Operation

    The Depth Cruiser uses a very simple control algorithm to help keep your boat at a constant depth.  It is designed to not interfere with your ability to control your boat or actively adjust your operating depth, but (when active) will assist your boat to maintain the operating depth you last achieved.  Using the bow-planes drive your boat to the desired depth, and once there let go of the control stick.  When the Depth Cruiser sees a rise- or dive command to the bow-planes it passes that command along and updates the “reference depth/pressure” that it will seek.  When the Depth Cruiser sees a neutral command to the bow-planes it will compare the current depth to the reference depth it has in memory and generate a command to the bow-planes in the appropriate direction to reduce that depth error.  To the operator this means it does not get in your way when you want to change depth, and will simply hold the depth you left off at when you last released the control stick.
