Be aware that if you incorrectly install the sounder will constantly or from time to time — which is much more dangerous to give incorrect readings. Therefore, related to the selection of the installation location of the sensor fish finder with all the responsibility.
The emitter of the sonar is mounted on the transom of the boat using the included supplies of arms. The sensor must be mounted so that it is all modes of motion of the boat was in the water. When I put the sounder on a motor boat, choose a location with a minimal amount of air bubbles — they strongly influence the accuracy of the readings.
Ensure that the echo sounder sensor was located without tilt, otherwise the instrument will give incorrect readings. Emitted by the sensor, the sound wave should go straight down.
Lower the sounder as much as possible, but be aware that this increases the probability of damaging the sensor or its bracket, when you tap the bottom or hitting an obstacle. The bracket design should assure that it is pivoted together with the sensor under strong attack. Reclining option is great for pulling the boat to shore and transportation.
On a plastic boat fish finder glue on the inner side of the body emitting side to the bottom. Just glue it to the outer shell, not to reinforcing and insulating inner layers. If there are any, accurately cut in them deepening in the form of the sensor. Glue it on with epoxy resin, then fill with a resin-free space around the sensor.
Make mount transducer fish finder to an inflatable boat without a transom. In such a boat the only lasting element is sometimes the seat. For mounting the Fishfinder you can use a curved metal tube or strip of metal, one end of which is secured by a bolt or clamp to the seat, and the second sensor bends around the container and submerged in water.
