irst job is to open the box and check everything is present with this done carefully work out here you are going to mount the fish finder

don’t have it to far away you need to be able to adjust the finder while on the water so make sure you can reach it on the other hand if its to close to the front of your console it may hinder re-entry or get in the way while changing tackle or un-hooking fish .

Once the location for the fish finder head unit is decided 3 simple nuts and bolts were used to mount the head mount base I like to use some silicone seal on the bolts to form a watertight seal once they are all tightened

Next was to put the wires through the kayak deck I decided to make a small plastic box to cover the hole in the console the box was filled with silicone then fitted with 2 nuts and bolts you can see I decided to fit a deck loop here as well this is just an extra anchor point

The same fitting with the excess silicone cleaned away leaves a waterproof and neat job

Image description

You can see here the position of the fish finder head unit and the watertight block I left just enough cable to make the connection

Image description

All was left to dry and set over night

The short bungee cord is used to keep the cables tidy during transport on the car

Next up will be the electrics, battery box and transducer all done inside the hull
