How to install transducer without making holes
« on: September 22, 2016, 06:09 PM »
A few buddies have taken a liking to how iv'e installed my lowrance transducers and I thought i'd share.  I'm sure this is old news to many but if I can prevent just one drill bit from piercing a kayak then i've done my job.  Like all of my good ideas, I stole this from someone else.  Here is a link to a very similar setup.  I use the same cheap duct seal you can buy at most home stores.  I form it into a donut, place transducer inside, and then shape the donut in to a volcano.  Lastly, drop a small amount of h2o over the transducer to eliminate any air pockets, allowing the transducer to work flawlessly. I keep big sponges in my kayak to absorb water and i'll use one to drop a bit of water on top of transducer.  I've learned that as time passes, the seal actually improves so do a good job with your initial installation and you're good for several years.
