Company to fit garmin fish finder

I want to get a Garmin striker 4 gps and finder and wondered if anyone could recommend someone to fit this to a 2004 bombard 480 sb explorer. I am not very practical and donít want a leaking boat.
I am in the Dartmouth area.

Thanks in advance

Austin Marine is our man of choice, but he's Plymouth based - guessing they'll be a local chap/

If you can get to the solid hull you can stick the transducer inside the hull with silicone or similar and it will work in this way there is no need to drill the hull. The installation other than this is very easy. Getting a person to do it will I suspect cost more than you paid for the unit

May be worth asking at a few local dealers if they could Fit if you took the bot to them allgadgetsmarine spring to mind might cost a little more than buying online but a lot.

If its just the worry of drilling into the hull, you don't have to even
with transom mount transducers. You can buy transducer pads that stick on the stern and you then simply fix the transducer to these.
