A few months ago I purchased my first sailboat. A HDR-600 depth finder is installed in the entrance to the cabin, and can not be seen from the cockpit. Can this unit be installed in the bulkhead? The manual says that it is waterproof and an ¨in-dash¨ unit, but I wonder why the previous owner did not installed outside, where it is more useful.
Also, a problem I am having with the depth finder is that it stops providing readings (goes blank) when the boat is in shallow waters - like 6-7 feet - i.e. when I need it most. Is this normal, or perhaps indicate that the transducer is defective or was not properly installed?
Thanks for your advice!
