losing depth readings

Recommended Posts

Inside the hull transducer is the way to go in my opinion if it's an option. I have the split with the SI/DI on the jack plate and a thru hull 2D on the Skeeter. I can read depths at 65 MPH. It still doesn't make up for having a good mapping system to know where humps and low water spots are.

whats happening is when your boat comes up on plane the transducer is coming out of the water, either you are going to have to relocate your transducer even lower or put it inside the hull. most transducers work thru hull just stick it down with vasaline be sure to get all the air bubbles out by twisting as you press in place and it should work. all but the si transducers will work this way. hope it helps

What unit do you have? Humminbird or Lowrance...If a Humminbird, You should be able to run a splitter /y cable...one to the transom td and one to a td epoxyed into the bottom of you boat...your 2ds readings will automatically come from the inside the hull td...side or down imaging from transom td...hope this helps
