Hi everyone!

I wonder if anyone is using a depth sounder on their Sandpiper?
What kind, how and where have you installed the transducer and how do you power it?

Thank you and happy holidays!

Brent

Hi Brent. I found some depth sounder discussions in an old thread. Check it out.

Good luck, Sailor. Keep us informed on your project.

Get a fish finder,does more for less money. Put my transducer in the forward compartment and encased it resin, it will then shoot through the hull. Over ten years ago, still works fine.

Now that's good advice.

Hey Sid, how are things? How is your winter? Have you got your boat indoors or under a tarp this year? You probably don't have too many more days before you launch.

Send an update on all things Sandpiper.

Last season was horrible, had the boat out one time for three hours. Hoping for a much better season this year. The Valhalla Breeze is outside but under the boat cover I made for it the year before.Hoping for a great sailing season for everyone.
