After a few years I finally got to checking the depth
transducer. And got yet another surprise in the old girl
Not 1 or 2 but THREE transducers in the forward bilge!!! There are two apparent depth
transducers (a separate thread will be started if I need help). And this jewel. It has 200 kHz on the top, stamped made in Japan
and is not attached to the hull
. The wires go into the bilge
, under the head's flooring
and then---??? Best I can gather from Google
is that it is an air transducer.
The mystery item is the black gizmo to the left of the old white transducer (that penetrates the hull/ wires are cut) and to the right of the new black transducer (apparently shooting through the hull).
Anyone have any thoughts on what and why there is a 200kHz transducer in the forward bilge
? This area does not hold water
. But, the anchor locker
does drain through here flowing into the main bilge.
Thanks in advance.
