    Faria Depth sounder transducer install-gctid382271

    Hi!

    Yesterday I installed my Faria depth sounder transducer. I used the template that came with the manual, and drilled holes on the stern of my boat.

    It just seems like maybe I did not install it correctly? See attached pictures, is the transducer mounted too low? As you can see in the second picture. It hangs a few centimetres under the boat bottom line.

    Is this a transducer cable penetration?

      that sender is the water temp sender. Its a flat sender and it's being screwed to the transom with 2 pcs of 2mm screws. In other words, the cable is not being penetrated thru hull

        Ahhh.......... I see!

        At first glance, it looks like an upside down plastic clam shell for a transducer cable penetration.

          any ideas regarding the transducer height?As I said, I followed the instruction manual, but I still think that the height is wrong. This is my first time I install a transducer..

            It should be just low enough not to have the air bubbles flow under the transducer, be sure the transducer is level to the water when in the water, it looks slanted, unless the boat is not level, bottom of transducer tipped fwd slightly is OK, especially when running or trolling.
