david

try solent plastics IP67 rated boxes 22.14 inc vat internal 235 x 180 x 106mm 4 litre capacity foam filled code MAX 235h105 there are others if you want to store other stuff.
good idea to set up on a bracket for piece of mind if not sure.
i bought a motor cycle battery 8 AH 30.
if you want to charge off the engine there should be a kit, this suzuki i bought this year has the alternator coils one for the one for the engine one for the charging i had to buy the kit which is a second rectifier 106 on the 4hp the kit changes the magneto as well not sure about yours just for info.

cheers

cheers jeff

Thanks for the instructions image. No mine isn't that detailed with no mention of not mounting to port of the prop... although it wasn't going to that side anyway.

Thanks also re case and battery advice guys. Getting battery ordered for tomorrow then I'll see how much extra room I'll need for spare cables etc to work out a container size.

just a thought if going down the engine charging route is a pain.
then think about battery size to allow all day use then in a portable case with a mains charger either built in or external for charging at night.you could set it all up in the case as i have for my CCTV.

cheers jeff

I've just ordered the Yuasa 7ah which would give 14hrs use. We are rarely on the move for more than 4hrs a day so that will have loads in hand.

I have a nice compact overnight charger that will be fine for this battery but that will stay in the house or holiday location. All I really need in my box is the battery itself and all the spare cable from the transducer which is long enough for a far larger boat and obviously can't be cut.

if it were me with your set up i would have it as a stand alone system in the peli case with the transducer on the bracket and clamp as you mentioned before that way you can adjust as you need de-tach from the boat for storing etc and housed in the foam case fully protected when not in use all stored in the box lid on sorted also your old system in there as back up.

cheers

Just thought I'd chuck up some pics of my "fast fit" mount and battery holder.

Like others have done I just screwed the base to the minimum piece of wood needed to sit along the edge of the seat. It attaches in seconds with some small bungee cord. Taking an idea from Firstrib the 7AH battery is in an old camera outfit case that hangs under the seat below the Garmin and also takes all the spare cable.

Haven't had time to do the transducer setup yet.

Still really pleased with this 45DV. It's compact and unobtrusive plus so much easier to read than my previous handheld. The bracket tilts and swivels without use of tools so through the day you can angle it spot on for where you're sitting or to avoid screen reflections from the sun.

For a daily inflate SIB its all you need size wise.

Final on the SIB images...

Got round to setting up the transducer at last. Like others a bit of scrap timber with a G-clamp as temp attachment until I know the posn on transom for best image. Then I'll drill through transom and timber with a stainless coach bolt plus butterfly nut to secure... but still make it an easy removal for packing away.

Battery still in the old camera case as advised by Firstrib is simple but neat taking all the spare cable as well (there's about 3m excess to loose). Nestles nicely between seat, tube and fuel tank with a bungee securing it.

Gosh it seems we have another thing in common Fenlander. Just browsing through the forums and see you have the Echomap 45. I bought one about 6 weeks ago too - the new Chirp version. Same price as the non chirp so why not eh. Mounted it on the rear of the TS370 front seat and as my DF20 is Electric start, I power it from that battery, a 35Ah unit in a battery box at the rear that also powers a bilge pump. I'd sent a photo but my boat is hanging deflated from the garage roof at the moment. I won't ever use it to find fish, but wanted the maps to explore with. I also have a GPSMAP 60 with the same map but the bigger screen is much better. The built in depth sounder was a bonus.
