Loss of depth reading over 15kph, is usually caused by either turbulence from under the chines of the boat, or that the transducer is toe up, or back end up. If the transducer throws up spray, it is back end up. Toe up is harder to see. Get someone to drive the boat and look overboard. The transducer needs to be flat at the speed you want to see the information, and of course that changes depending it you are trolling or on plane and your trim.

Not marking fish could be a faulty transducer or that the sensitivity setting is not set high enough. Read the manual. I am a Humminbird person :>)
