Fish finders/transducer selectioj
Posted by: Yakety-yak on Oct-06-12 7:14 AM (EST) Category: Kayaks
I have an eagle fish finder with the transducer mounted in a scupper. I'm not completely happy with the installation, but am uncertain about performance of a shoot through the hull. There are plenty of references to aluminum and fiberglass installs but nothing about resin and composites of yak hulls. Anyone have any experience with anything like this?

I have installed two, using lexel to fill within a minicell foam perimeter glued to the hull bottoms and then slowly squeezing the transducers in.

As far as I'm concerned, the Humminbird thru-hull is THE way to go. They'll exchange the transducer that comes with a new unit for one of these, no charge. The unit protrudes from the hull bottom less than a quarter-inch and is smooth and flat, so there's no extra drag or snag worries. The only drawback is that there's no temp sensor in this xducer.
