I have a leopard
39 cat (37ft). As an avid diver i am looking at installing a garmin
echomap 95sv with a side scan transducer
for wreck and dive site mapping. The Garmin
and side scan is separate from the main boat
. I have raymarine depth
, chart plotter and auto pilot for sailing. The question I have is where to mount the transducer?
Forward of the keel
i dont have good access on the inside of the hull
. Beside the keel
I have access but would loose one side of the scan as the keel would be in the way which would mean having two transducers with one on each keel (expensive + an extra hole in a keel)
What looks like the best position would be directly (about a foot) behind the keel and before the sail drive. Has anybody done this or something similar? does anyone foresee problems with this location?
any input appreciated.
