I picked the transducer apparatus up from Rickie at the c.com gathering in Kentucky last year. I finally got around to mounting my transducer. (Moles come out the hole on a warm day.) I am almost ready. Little more wiring to finish and need to raise my engine a notch or two.

This device looks good and works Jim Dandy.

Do you think you can drive around with the transducer down. I have a tiller steer motor on a 19' boat and i could use one of those for scouting new holes. I have a terrova ordered and a Hummingbird 999 ci si di combo ordered and spyderloc 4 pole holders. I also got some 4 pole seats ordered so they can be moved around. My boat is a mud boat with a Prodrive mud motor. I dont have to worry about running over too much stuff even rocks. I was just curious. Didnt mean to jack your thread. Way nice boat by the way.

I had one of these units on a War Eagle. I "idled" around with the transducer down. I know the lake pretty well up here, so I wasn't worried as bout hitting anything. On the main channels, I would run up 8mph looking at stuff. I would not do this on unknown waters.

It is a custom built boat. I purchased the basic hull from Custombilt Boats in Geneva, Al. They will build what you want from their basic hulls or you can buy the hull. I put all the stuff on it (seats,troll motor, engine, etc). I made my own electric steering system and built my own instruments. Fun project.

Hese is a first out slide. Haven't had the rig out much. Went to Ms camp with this rig last fall. Got the pole holders from EZ poleholer. He installed them plus other stuff. Great people there at the camp.

I saw the switch for the Nav lights. My question is what is the switch located under the rear white light for? What size motor are you running on this? I do so like your boat!

30 Merc. The boat is 6' x 16'. I have more floor room that the War Eagle Predator I had and I feel safer with the flat flooring. No stepping up and down. The back switch turns on the anchor light. Easier to install a switch than to tie all the stuff to a single light switch.

I am moving in on 3/4 Century ya know. Old man ideal rig here.
