threw hull transducers

2 posts in this topic

two questions for the experts. Will my transducer off a lms350a work on a lcx15mt. It came with a threw hull trancducer. Never have had one. Do they read at full speed going across the lake ect. Is there any magic to mounting them. is there adjuctments as far as angle to put in boat. I have a 2090 fiberglass warrior. what if the boats bottom is angled. I'm lost amy help would be cool. thanks

I don't think the transducer for the 350a will work with the x15, although I'm not positive. Check the plugs on the back of the units to see if they're the same but I think one has gray connectors and the other has black??? If so, they're not compatable.

When you say a through hull transducer, I assume you mean a shoot-through-hull one that you mount in the bottom of the bilge? They work great, no interference or cavitation so they excel at high speed. They may lose a little sensitivity and definition by having to shoot through the hull though.

To mount them, sand down a small area in the bilge to get to the clear fiberglass, and wipe it down with acetone or something like that. Apply your epoxy to the bilge (make a big puddle) then set your transducer in - don't rock the transducer back and forth as this will cause air bubbles and give you problems - set one edge in at a slight angle then slowly press down the other side of the transducer until it's in the epoxy and level. You have to eyeball / guess at the correct angle.

The epoxy route is a permanent solution, ie. the transducer is there forever. Antoher route that I've never tried but have heard good things about is mounting the transducer in silicone. You probably won't get as good of readings in silicone, and the silicone might pop loose after a while, but the advantage is you can remove the transducer from the silicone so it's a great way to test it out and see how it works.

Hope this helps, good luck.

    • This might be one of the reasons. 
    • Are the majority of United States citizens too dumb to vote?  A great mantle of responsibility has been placed upon us.  Are we capable?    I shudder every time I contemplate this.     
    • Ended up with one bird on public ground western meeker County Friday afternoon. Saturday the pooch put up 6 birds for us in the morning in swift co with hardly a breeze and all I could do was tickle 1 bird, not very proud of that.  This morning the wind was howling which made the birds jumpy but managed a couple.  We pounded a lot of gravel and didn't see much at all, but then again lots of corn still in.
    • I had military mickeys for years... and years but about 2 years ago I bought Baffin's. AWESOME boots. Sooooooo comfy, warm and decently light. I own Muck's and they are great for more "active" fishing as my feet get cold in them if I just sit one the ice all day. That said, you CAN walk all day in mucks. The comment about Baffin's being large and unable to get pants over...very true! But a great boot none the less.
    • maybe Eve got it!?!?
    • No......but "brexit" was polling within the 4 percent margin of error before the vote . Cant imagine any one of those 272 in the 8 percent  and above range flipping.  Suppose anything is possible, couldn't ever imagine Trump being considered a serious candidate either. 
    • These the same reputable folks that said Brexit was going to lose by a significant margin?
    • So, you are voting Trump?  Or are you going for Gary Johnson?
    • According to the most reputable poll trackers, with a couple weeks to go looks like Hilldawg already has 272 solid votes....... with Trump only at 127. The swing states currently within a 4 ish percent margin of error are Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and Texas. Weird saying Texas and Georgia are swing states and got believe will go to Trump. For fun am also going to give him Arizona, Iowa, and Ohio.......leaving him 216......and 322 for our next first lady.
