dead. Was working perfectly until the morning after I got to port which is renound for a silty bottom and I cant be sure she dint sink into it. Since then 0.0m on the display.
A fluke it died then? after working perfectly then to die that night/morning??
Did she sit on the silt and damage it? was in a close up berth at the time but not sure she touched the bottom... the transd would be pretty hardy wouldn't it?
Did she sit on the silt and she's just caked in mud? Would have come off with a couple of trips up the river and regardless can all transducers go "through hull"?? therefore a bit of mud shouldn't worry it? Worked all the way up the river till shut down that night/morning.
Is it just that the silt isn't giving a good reflection? then it would say max wouldn't it?
She didn't come good with 2 days of sailing. I haven't hauled her. all wiring
seems intact. Nothing touched internally to stop her working.
Where to from here? New transducer
? Borrow transducer
and test? borrow gauge and test? Can I pull it whilst in the water
and check it with limited ingress?
