Default RE: m260 transducer results

mjl - 9/23/2008 2:56 PM

Thought I'd share my results of installing a m260 1kw shoot-thru transducer. It held bottom out to 1800ft great, I'm really impressed with the performance over the 600kw flush mounted thru-hull it replaced.

It's a raymarine c120/ dsm300 on a 32 intrepid.

I wanted to include a picture, but I can't figure out how-
I have that exact setup...love it. I start to loose bottom around 1650 feet or so or 280 fathoms. It also holds bottom while on plane at any speed so if I run over something interesting, I can stop to check it out....no need to run over fish to find fish. Only issue is need for separate temp sensor so had to install that on the transome and run the wire to the helm and connect to the DSM using the Y cable.
