Unable to properly configure UIScrollView to scroll UIImageView

I have been fighting with this all morning and can't seem to find a solution. I have created a UIImageView, filled it with red, then added it to a UIScrollView and set the contentSize to the size of the UIImageView. If I print the contentOffset i see 0, 0 and if I print contentSize and the UIImageView.frame.size they are the same but the red "image" always appears smaller than what the scrollView thinks the contentSize is.

If I scroll all the way to the top I see a cyan stripe about 100 pixels high above the red image and the scroll bar will not make it all the way to the top of what I believe the top of my scroll view to be. Although the top of the scroll bar does line up with the top of my red window so it would seem as though the scroll view is confused as to where it actually lives. Or more likely, I'm confused


Here is my what seems like very simple code...

imgHorizon = UIImage.init(named:"horizon")!
imgBezel = UIImage.init(named:"bezel_transparent")!
imgWings = UIImage.init(named:"wings_transparent")!

imgViewHorizon = UIImageView.init()
imgViewBezel = UIImageView.init()
imgViewWings = UIImageView.init()

svHorizon = UIScrollView.init()

super.init(coder: aDecoder)

imgViewHorizon = UIImageView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: imgBezel.size.width, height: imgHorizon.size.height))
imgViewHorizon.backgroundColor =

imgViewBezel = UIImageView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: imgBezel.size.width, height: imgBezel.size.height))
imgViewBezel.contentMode =
imgViewBezel.clipsToBounds = true
imgViewBezel.image = imgBezel

imgViewWings = UIImageView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: imgBezel.size.width, height: imgBezel.size.height))
imgViewWings.contentMode =
imgViewWings.clipsToBounds = true
imgViewWings.image = imgWings

svHorizon = UIScrollView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: imgBezel.size.width, height: imgBezel.size.width))
svHorizon.contentSize = CGSize(width: imgBezel.size.width, height: imgHorizon.size.height)
svHorizon.contentMode = UIViewContentMode.scaleToFill
svHorizon.bounces = false
svHorizon.backgroundColor = UIColor.cyan
svHorizon.contentOffset = CGPoint(x: 0, y: 0)

From the discussion in the comments it turns out that the Adjust Scroll View Insets option was checked in the attributes inspector of the ViewController. Unchecking it resolved the problem. Have a look at the image below. You need to uncheck the highlighted option.
