We are headed back to the US soon for our annual greet the family
& spend boat bucks. One of the things that has been on our list for the past few years is a Fishfinder
. A excellent way to determine bottom contour when anchoring
. Ok may even point us to some fish
The basic package comes with the head
and a 20' length of cable ending in a transom mounted transducer.
Has anyone used this identical system (Garmin 150) and used the supplied transom transducer to shoot thru the fiberglass hull
? I know many boats that use this method (with type unknown) and even though it reduces the overall depth
reading seems to work just fine.
To swap out the transom mounted transducer for a normal thru hull
type will cost me a lot more than the entire unit costs.
Your comments and suggestions on the Garmin
150 would be greatly appreciated.
