    This may help you.

    To search for specific Chart page item:
    1. From the Chart page press the MENU key. The Chart menu will
    appear, select Find. The Find menu will appear.
    2. From the Find menu select Chart Items. The Find - Chart Items
    screen will appear. Select Name, a keypad will appear. Use the
    keypad to enter the name of the chart item and select OK.

    If you don't find your specific item, you still have a couple of ways to go if this is really important. You can read the regs and create a permanent route that marks the forbidden area, and save it into your MFD. It will always be there to remind you not to cross. This is time consuming but nice to do in front of the fireplace on an stormy day.
    The easiest way is to obtain coordinates from other fishing vessels and just plug them in and save as above.

    Lowrance HDS-8 gen 2

    Put the unit on a couple of months ago am very happy with it, still learning all the bells and whistles. I am wondering if its possible to go into the nav side and somehow program it to show the closed to fishing areas on the Bodega Coastal area? It really shows whats on the bottom found a big sunken boat out of Brannon Island showed the shape and bridge of the wreck was way cool it was in about 50 feet of water. I run the 50-200 trans. Any tips on the unit would be apreciated. I found the unit for 400 less than most all the big stores were asking, including shipping. Dennis
