Default Is my Garmin broken?

I think I may be losing my mind. I have fished around a ledge a couple of times. I was there early in the season, and the ledge was exposed and above water from the red bouy to lighthouse. I was there last night at high tide. The ledge was submerged, and I was able to go over it. My sounder said it was 20 feet deep????? The tide doesn't change 20 feet does it? Am I crazy or is my sounder not working?

Tide height is greater the farther north you go. Not sure where you are in MA, but high last night was around 9.5 feet near Boston, and around 3.5 feet down by me in Westport.

You may want to check and make certain that your depth finder transducer is angled correctly

If it is tilted you are not getting a straight up and down reading hence the false depth

What does it read at the dock?
