Depth Finders

Apart from using the lower leg of your outboard to check the depth - are Fishfinders any use?

If so, and I could only fit a transom transducer - do you use a narrow or wide angle transducer.

Got most of the paint off my prop.....

Hi

Try typing "Sounder" in the forum search, Lots on this subject already been covered

or look at

I would recommend the Garmin Blue range as been a good budget sounder.

Cheers

Have a look at the Lowrance X51

Has a really good display and features.
For the price 150 I think its worth looking at.

As far as transom mount transducers, you could use a shoot through.
Most transom transducers can be used in this mode by bedding down onto epoxy resin in the hull.
