Hello group,

New member here and I have a question. I am going to replace my gps with a multifunction unit. I'd like to mount a "shoot thru-hull" or "in-hull" transducer.

Has anyone done this on a Ciera 2859? I'd love to hear from anyone that has or is considering doing it. Thanks!

Paul

Hey Fishntoss,

Nope not yet - the xducer is sitting in the blige in a ziploc full of water. It works fine BTW but hardly a permanent solution.

I'll be working on my boat this w/e and will be figuring the appropriate housing et al.

Once I do the install I'll post back with details.

 

Paul

 Well good luck,
 What I did with mine... I copied an idea from another guy. Went out and got a 4 inch piece of pvc. Got it cut to pretty darn close to the slope of the bilge area. Figured out how high it would have to be in order to get my transducer in there. I mounted the transducer to a pvc cap. When I slip the cap on the other piece, my trans now sits in the water of it(the piece I glued in the bilge area).

 Confused Yet??? Trans mounted to cap, place cap on short piece of pipe semi filled with water. You want the transducer sitting as level as you can get it, or it won't really be giving you correct readings. Otherwise you're looking off to the side instead of straight down.

 I'm told you're supposed to use mineral oil I believe. Just didn't have any. Water seems to work okay, but, will be replacing it with the correct stuff..

 When glueing to the bottom of the boat, I did a leak test to make sure everything was sealed and wouldn't leak out from under the pvc pipe. Once I was sure it was okay, I ran some more 4200 around the outside of the pipe.

 Hope it makes sense.. it's late and I'm on my pain killers.. bad knee.. Anyways, good luck...          ;           ;           ; tom
