    depth finders

    do any of you guys have a depth finder on your ski (besides the sound of crunching gravel)?
    I do alot of creek exploring and was considering one. Any reccomendations and mounting ideas?
    thanks

    Yes I have one on both my skis. One is factory Seadoo and one Hawkeye.

    If installing from inside the hull......make sure you use epoxy on the hull to attach it.no bubbles in the epoxy when mounting it or else youll get wrong readings.
    also keep it as vertical as possible so the sonar signal will be square to the bottom of the lake.

    Also mount it away from turbulance from the pump.keep it forward of the pump.
    The epoxy will help create a good clean signal.

    The Seadoo displays on the stock dash. Here is a pic of the Hawkeye.

    I think Jetskibrian used 100% silicon on one of his to mount it. Not sure if its better or not, I'm curious to know.

    i have the hawkeye great product works very well and accurate even at WOT, but that depends where you mount the transducer, i must add i am on my 6th display all replaced due to warranty and they are still failing they are not as water proof as advertised. keep the water and rain away from the display and you wont have a problem.
