Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

i just thought of something. it was hard to see. perhaps it wasn't shed 80 but, rater, sched 80; as in schedule 80 PVC. i googled IBS and IBS precision engeneering group came up. i haven't checked far into it, yet, but, they do make sensors. i did snap some pics of plugged holes in the rear cabin wall, facing into the cockpit, that i suspect may have been gauge holes. the one was plugged permanently. it's around 4" across and round. the other had a 6" round access panel, with a screw in cap.

i haveseen a pic of another cal27 that has a second compass in the place where my boat has the access panel. perrhaps that's what is supposed to go there and the 4" ( capped ) hole was where the depthfinder was. or, perhaps the depthfinder went in the bigger ( access panel ) hole and the speedometer went in the smaller hole...assuming that the sensor in the side of the bilge is a speed sensor.

Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

So you have an "in hull" mount already - that means you can service/remove the transducer while afloat.. Odds are its a 200kHz transducer so all you'll need is a compatible head. Most signet transducers have some red on them.. Round cutout would point to Signet or Standard Horizon (from that era)

so that does sound like an in hull to you, then? so far, i can only see black and grey on this one. i will google those brands and see if i can see an image that looks like what i have.

This is a new signet (but old style) in Md

My mistake, the DS transducers are not red, the speed sensors have red screwcaps. I don't expect you'll want that one (costs more than the boat and much cheaper ones are available now even new) but the pics might help.

that would mean the speed sensor is probably a signet as it has red on it.

Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

any opinions about a Faria depth sounder?

or how about this hmmingbird?http://http://www.ebay.com/itm/Humminbird-HDR-650-Digital-Depth-Finder-Sounder-Hummingbird-HDR650-407860-1-/400585779547?pt=Boat_Parts_Accessories_Gear&hash=i tem5d44c5e95b&vxp=mtr


do you think i could wire my transducer onto a unit like this one? i'm not sure how to actually id this unit. the writing i posted, above, is all the writing on the unit.

Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

Most depth transducers are made by the same company (Airmar) anyway regardless of who 'sold' them with which head. It's usually a simple two wire w/ shield connection, only so many combos.

Don't know about Faria other than having heard of them. I'd look for a used signet head, people are updating this stuff all the time, if it's a 200kHz transducer it will probably work.

Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

just to be thorough, i am posting a pic, one of the original pics in the ad that led me to this boat ( amazing how much better it already looks ), that shows the gauge holes in the rear of the cabin. i forgot about this pic when we were discussing the depth finder. i believe the depth finder was previously in the closed off hole just to port of the companionway.




http://


just for giggles, here is the other pic that was in the ad.




pretty rough looking. most of my time has been spent working on the inside but what i have done on the outside has really made a difference. after the holidays, i will snap a recent exterior pic to post. wish i had taken better interior pics before i even started scraping paint, so i could look back, when i am done, and see just how far she has come.
