Re: Transom Mount Transducer mounted inside the hull in a bed of 'jelly'

G'day Captains.

Can anyone advise me as to whether the Downvu functions on the likes of Raymarine Dragonflys and Lowrance Elites DownScan still works properly? I have been advised (by a dealer) that it won't.

dannyjoh - I have the same problem. My Hawkeye works fine over the side, but when Installed - a no-go. Returning to the store for a refund. I need recommendations on a different brand as well.

Re: Transom Mount Transducer mounted inside the hull in a bed of 'jelly'

I have a transom type inside the hull and it almost works. Sometimes works fine but most of the time does not. Epoxied in. I tried it in a pool of water inside the hull and worked fine. I am did not getting back the gel coat prior andv wonder this would help.

I used marine tex to bed mine with and it's been working fine.

I didn't work at all when you just set it down in there. Once I put the marine tex down it worked.
