Depth Finder Tranducer Install

25 September 2007
Scott would not be pleased at all about this install. When I came back to check on the guy, he had drilled holes in the hull and had installed screws into the hull. He secured the transducer to the hull below the waterline with screws. He secured the wire along the stern with screws and through the top of the rear birth with a hole in the hull and along the starboard side with the other wires to the main unit. I'm torn because its secured much better and cleaner than I probably would have done it, but when I went to pay Jesus, the head guy, he kind of looked at me funny and reminded me that they hadn't tested it and I should come back if there were any problems. That's not particularly comforting. The original depth finder died soon after I got the boat and had its transducer mounted inside the hull. At the sailboat shop they do a full-on below the waterline through-hull fitting to install the transducer. They say the picture of the bottom is not as good with an in-hull transducer. Mine is in the water and hopefully it will work just fine. What's somewhat concerning is that I have an above the waterline through-cabin hole in the hull protected by a u-shaped fitting and plenty of marine white goop (hopefully hardened by now). That's comforting... I think.
