So no special transducer is needed? That's good news....
Thanks for the replies, gentlemen!
How are you, Cap? Moving the wife and kids went well. However, I had the boat laid up in Jacksonville for most of a year, due to the Deepwater Horizon event last summer, which was followed by storm season. While dry docked, I had serious water intrusion through the stb. coachroof rail and mainsheet wench.... I checked on the boat in April, and it was fine. I came back in early December and found eight inches of water in the cabin.... it got in the engine crankcase.... unbelievable.... It was the apocalypse....
Anyway, I got the mess cleaned up, rebuilt the engine, worked on teh steering quadrant, did a ton of epoxy work on the bottom, painted the deck, etc. Between work, family and all, I've one busy S.O.B. The engine (an A-4) runs like a sewing machine, and all is well once again. They have a DIY boatyard nearby. I was there for three months and had them replace the cutlass bearing, rebed a couple of thru-hulls, and prime the bottom.... and the bill was $860! And that included a gallon of Micron bottom paint....
Anyway, I'm of half a mind to do a quick haul and properly install the transducer. Then again, I am so dang sick of boat maintenance right now....
Anyway, good to chat, my friend! Looking forward to pestering/ridiculing the Wombat!
