    Hawkeye Depth Guage for RXP-X

    I just installed the hawkeye depth guage on my new RXPX and cannot seem to find a solid place in the hull that will allow the transducer to shoot through. Has anyone else had any luck? I often beach/hydroport the ski and do not want to mount it on the rear. Thanks!

    On the 07's and earlier there was a 3.5" round spot just to the left front of the tunnel where the stock depth guage was mounted. I would think it is the same on the 08's. You'll have to move some stuff out of the way to find it and work with it. See my thread about installing mine with pics...You have to mount it at an angle on the hull so it shoots straight down to the bottom or it won't work very well.

    Hey Larry... on the RXP's they dont have that flat spot.

    The only place I found that you can install it in the hull is just in front of the pump opening.

    Mine reads perfectly.

    Here are pic's of my transducer install.

    Finally...

    There's got to be a place to mount the OEM depth finder which can be used for aftermarkets too.
