  1. In Hull Fishfinder

    So I have been doing a lot of research and even emailed Humminbird, never got a response. What I am looking for is either a Puck/In Hull transducer that is combo'd with a display. Or a display only that does not come with a transducer that I can pair with a Puck. The issues I am having is: the...
  2. New transducers smaller than holes

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hi all...probably not the first to ask about this but couldn't find an answer in the forum. I have a Beneteau First325 and am replacing depth, speed, and wind instruments. Pulled old thru-hull transducers and found that the new transducers are 1/8" smaller in diameter. Was considering building...
  3. Thru- vs In-hull transducers

    Gear & Maintenance
    I need to replace my depth and speed instruments (original from 1979). What is the performance difference between a thru-hull and in-hull depth transducer? Is my 1970's fiberglass too thick to use an in-hull?
  4. Navman Depth Sounder Transducer

    I have a Navman Depth 3100 on my Azuli F40 Cat (Foam sandwich hull). The transducer is mounted in-hull at a solid f/glass section near seawater intake. The sounder has worked OK for about 11.5 years. But recently the display started showing "- -" instead of the depth numbers. I read that you...
  5. Choosing a depth sounder

    Gear & Maintenance
    I have a Oday 272 (my first boat) and one of the things that I want to put on it is a depth finder. I'm the type of person who doesn't want to drill holes in his boat so I was looking at transducers that can shoot through the hull. Reading up on the problem I can find information but I have some...
  6. Standard Horizon DS-1 depth finder

    Gear & Maintenance
    I have a Standard Horizon DS-1 depth sounder that appears to have water in the display and when I turn it on it makes an alarm sound, but doesn't display anything. Does anyone have an old Standard Horizon DS-1 that works and would be willing to sell? Or any recommendations for a replacement...
  7. Old transducer on new HDR650 depthfinder

    I recently bought a new Humminbird HDR650 to replace my working "President" depthfinder which had a display that was too cloudy to read. I assumed that I'd just hook up the HDR650 to the exisiting transducer wiring but ran into this snag. The transducer cable has a multiple pin plug that only...
  8. Shoot Thru Hull Transducer

    Gear & Maintenance
    I have a 27' Ericson and am trying to install a Hawk Eye shoot thru hull transducer. Has anyone installed this unit, where did they mount it, etc? I’ve hooked up the display and the transducer works when I hang it overboard, but I can’t find a spot to get a reading through the hull. Help…
