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.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
