SUBJECT: # 25048: Carolina Skiff, Transom Mount Transducer

Submitted by mn (64.12.96.43) from VIRGINIA on 3/3/03 8:05:00 PM

Any suggestions for mounting a transducer to the trans. of a carolina skiff? I found that the transom doesn't run to the bottom of the boat. I really want to protect the floation foam as I have seen the posts about water problems. Thanks.

    If you talking about on the outside why not scuff the transome clean really good and epoxy the transducer if drilling and tapping scares you ..John

    Mounting a transducer on the transom of Carolina Skiffs, usually doesn't work too well, what happens is you get turbelance off the bottom of the boat and over about 8 or 9 mph you will get very erroneous readings on depth.People I have spoken to say that it is because of the flat bottom on the boat, the shoot through ducer might be the way to go.
