Re: Minimal Electronics reqirements and alternatives
Mark, the fishfinder is a depthfinder. I bought fishfinders because they are cheap and in addition to the depth they give you extra data like bottom type (mud, sand, rock etc.), alarms, battery voltage and so on. I also like fishfinders because I prefer to mount the transducer inside the boat without adding any holes to the hull. A regular depthsounder does the same job.
