I was wondering is it possible to hang a airmar transducer off a pole of the back of the boat even though it is a thru hull. I'm going on a voyage for two weeks and I need a quick fix.
I'm gonna give it a try. I'll keep you informedI put an emergency Humming bird type, @$$70-90 on 2x2 wood pole clamped to stern rail. This transducer has wire that is screwed to the wood with the transducer screwed to the bottom of wood & pointing in the correct direction. Has to be in the water a few inches. You can raise or lower as needed. WORKED FINE on sailboat ! You are not going 20.knts
......Main problem is transducer is 45ft back from the front . Mine was 30ft . But, using Chartplotter depts. & going slow in shallow areas was good.
seems like my hull is to thick. My electronics guy says it won't work. Hull to thick I guess. It's a 45 ft coronado.
