Raymarine Speed/Sonar transducer
I went to pull the transducer blank for the first time this season and had to use a pair of channel locks on the ring to get it out. Once out it seemed to have this greenish looking coating on it (similar to cooper corrosion) even though I thought the tube and transducer area all plastic. I inserted the transducer and after a daysail when I pulled it out I also ended up using the channel locks. Before inserting the blank I coated it with vaseline. Anyone ever have an issue like this?

Re: Raymarine Speed/Sonar transducer
Is it mold? Did bottom paint get up inside?

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
