Seemed Like a Good Idea...

Had to replace the depth finder as the one that came with the boat was non functional (Fish Finder Screen.. deteriorated in sun)

So I got a nice Hummingbird 600' depth finder with alarms..

When setting in the transducer I noticed this "contraption" holding the unit...
It's a bucket mounted to the hull of the boat filled partially with water...Tucked under port settee...



The transducer is mounted on a hinge with some stainless brackets and will "tilt" or lean when the boat "heels"...Keeping the transducer pointed directly at the bottom rather than off ot one side..and in the water for good transmission/penetration...



Seems like a good Idea so I restored it...
