Re: What are these things?

I thank you for the reply, Mechsmith. I'm trying to process the idea that you're putting forward, but am unable to picture how the sensor or sensing apparatus would meet the water.

Re: What are these things?

Thank you, ReefMagnet. I did not find the plug on the boat, so ended up ordering one online to try and get this thing taken care of asap. Research appears to have narrowed it down to an RS...

Re: What are these things?

I went way down in my attitude after realizing it's not a simple bilge problem, but a leaking transducer, and now I have hope again at the thought of switching it with the blanking plug. Will go in...

Re: What are these things?

Yeah, I've come to terms with that (grumble). Came here looking to diagnose what I thought was a bilge problem, but now understand that it's a leak around the transducer.

I'm trying envision what...

Re: What are these things?

Can anyone say if it could be likely that it's leaking, as there is occasionally a small amount of water around it? I had thought it was due to its proximity to the bilge, but is it possible that it...

Re: What are these things?

Re: What are these things?

Thanks for the reply, ReefMagnet. I suppose the idea that it's a transducer would suggest that it is unrelated to the bilge? Do you think? Any other thoughts you have on it, I'd really appreciate...

Re: What are these things?
