    which size case are you using? Really like your set up.

    I did the Livescope installation inside a 30 quart Engels cooler. There's a YouTube video of a guy mounting a unit inside a magellan cooler. I copied mine similar to his. My transducer pole attaches to a D size ram mount on the side of my Bay Boat. Add another ram mount to your pontoon boat Orion 70 and you could switch between your boats.

    Did you run the batteries one for each unit or run them in parallel ? Could you post a picture of your management of the transducer cable? Thanks

    Could you post a picture of the inside of the box and your routing/management of the transducer cable? Thanks

    Sorry but I have disassembled it and mounted it permanently in the boat. Looked back and couldn't find any pics of the inside of the box. I drilled two holes
    just behind where the head unit is mounted for the power cable, network cable from the livescope black box and the Si/Di transducer, this also allowed it to breathe. Had a hole in the back for the cables to the transducers. Mounted the Blackbox on plastic standoffs to help with keeping it cool. After I had everything connected I just coiled the extra cables up neatly inside the box. I still have the box in my storage shed, I'll try to get you a pic of it.
    Thanks LadyBear thanked you for this post
