Default Shielding Transducer Cable

"4. If possible, route the transducer cable away from other wiring on the boat. Electrical noise from engine wiring, bilge pumps, and aerators can be displayed on the sonar’s screen. Use caution when routing the transducer cable around these wires."

This is from Lowrance site. In addition to routing the xducer cable away from wiring, would it not make sense to "sleeve" the cable to further reduce any interference?

you will find Airmar's marine cables are already shielded. I find most FF noise is acoustic, not electrical. Still, its a good idea to watch cable placement.

I've yet to see any noise difference on my finder with the engine on or off and I ran my ducer cable down the same chase as my helm electrical, etc.
