Default Wrench for Airmar B75?

Anyone know what size nut is on the B75? I guess I'll end up ordering the crows foot wrench that fits the nut. Just looking for other alternatives before ordering.

I wish I could remember and pass you the info but I don't recall. I do recall wishing I'd just bought the damn wrench they sell for it...

Small Chanel Lock filter wrench worked good for me.

I made a small modification to this and it worked great. I removed the bolt and nut holding it together and drilled out the sliding groove just a little to widen the jaws.

I needed a very small wrench to fit in the place where I installed the transducer.

I almost picked that up at Lowes for $10.

I ordered the Channel Locks filter pliers mentioned above. It may not work, but "I just needed it honey."

Just ordered a couple of these, for doing installs. They do not sell direct but have a dealer locator on their web site. The guys at gemeco are complete rock stars and the phone apps are priceless.
