anyone ever have the transducer make an audible clicking noise? Works great other than that. I hate to replace the thing, because I have it fiftytwohundreded to the backside of the transom.

Anyone, Bueller, anyone?

Mark are you talking about hearing the noise when the boat is in the water?

Yes. They do that. That is how they work. I didn't notice the clicking myself until I was anchored on a calm day with my motor off.

Your not the first one to post on this.
One guy thought he was getting shocked when he put his hand under the transducer.

Dreamweaver has it right -- you should worry if it doesn't click. Then you would have to replace it. Remember all those submarine movies with the sonar ping in the soundtrack? That's what you have too.

I just didn't remember it doing that at the onset.
