Bit of splash from the wood the transducer's mounted on but I think I can lift it a bit and still get decent readings.
So I have the same set up but on a Honwave T38. The boat has the extended trim tabs from the inflatable keel/floor and I have the transducer neatly in line with the tabs so as not to disrupt the under-boat flow of water. 9/10 I get good depth readings however every so often the depth starts flashing and I need to stop before it regains signal - annoying at speed.
Is this flashing a problem with turbulence fo you know? i.e. I'm losing signal... and therefore I should perhaps have the transducer slightly lower?
I can't go too much lower or I could foul the prop (those trim tams push the transducer perilously close to the leg of the OBM.
