who is using a depth finder and what type/brand works best for you?not performance related but posted this in the fishing section and no responses so trying here, what depth finder are you using does it work? is it a waste of money? is it a glue in transducer or transom mount? post any pics or links you have for ideas.

I use Hawkeye with transducer glued in the hull - works reasonably well - most of the time (90%) it reads the depth
My buddy uses Hawkeye with transducer mounted on rear of hull, bolted to the hull on the outside - works excellent - always reads the depth

The cables are terminated so you must bundle the extra.
Here is the transducer epoxied to the hull this is on a GPR.
Here is the display below the bars.

I have installed 5 of the hawkeye in the yamaha fx ho hulls. I have pics of several differant display mounts, and transducer placement. Dont know how to post pics on this site. Will be happy to email them to ya. You can mount the transducer near the pump tunnel. thats where the hull is only one layer thick. I get accurat data at 64mp. The Customer servace at Norcross/ Hawkeye is GREAT!!
