  • Depth finder install
    I was wanting to install a depth finder gauge on my boat. I was wondering how difficult it is to install these. Also which would you recommend the transom mount or in-hull transducer?

    It’s not bad if you’ve had a little wiring experience. You’ll need to fish wires from the helm to the bilge and you’ll need a 2” hole for the gauge.

    Go here and click on “HDR 610” for mounting instructions for Humminbird’s gauge to give you an idea of the steps involved.

    I’d use the in hull mount if your boat is fiberglass. It’ll make for a lot cleaner looking installation and should read fine.

      On the in hull installation you have to be very careful that you don’t have any air bubbles in the glue between the transducer and the hull. You will get a more accurate reading with water depth with the in hull set up. Depending on your boat the transom mount it’s usually about a foot higher than the bottom of the boat and bottom of motor. Keep this in mind when in shallow water
