    Depth Finder

    Hey guys, I ran across this depth finder when researching them. It says it can be mounted inside the hull or on the transom outside. It's good for up to 70mph it says. I like it because of the small digital read out and it can be installed just like one of our boost gauges or AFR gauges. Has anyone used something like this yet ?

    I installed this one on my ski and it works awesome. Even at 60 MPH. I used the in hull transducer option.

    That's a clean install Bryan! I want to add one of these to the VXR for this season. I have a tendency of finding the shallow spots the hard way lol

    That looks good, are you mounting the transducers in the back of the ski at the bottom ?

    Its under my exhaust, probably about 2 feet from the rear of the craft. As long as its in a place where the hull is still in the water at speed, it should work.

    Here's a picture of my depth finder install. I bought the Faria Chesapeake model and used the Airmar P79 Transducer. I mounted the transducer right behind the battery box in the ski.

    I just opted for the depth finder only, it would have been nice to use the air temp feature to tell me the ambient air temp inside the ski.

    Where do you mount the transducer in a fx sho? The only spot I can see big enough on back of ski is behind battery box, but it has an incline.
