For anyone deep dropping the combination of a Furuno FCV 295 or FCV 1150 with an Airmar CHIRP transducer is an excellent option.

3-Press%20Release%20-%20Airmar%20CHIRP%20Transducers%20Achieve%20Superior%20Results%20for%20Both.pdf

The FCV 295 and FCV1150 are tunable sonars..one can select and use any 2 frequencies between 28 kHz and 200 kHz.

The combination of a tunable system using the super sensitive tunable Airmar CHIRP transducer is the edge many fisherman have been looking for fishing the deeper water conditions.

And where a CHIRP black box system with MFD and transducer can run $5500. to $6000. ..

A FCV 295 and a CHIRP can be just over $3200.


these I have on special:
B265C-LM-SIM....................$999.
TM265C-LH-SIM..................$850.

Default CHIRP for Furuno 295

What is the difference between the ducers you recommend? '
I'll be using a faring block to install in a 37 Topaz Express charter boat running out of Downtown Miami.

The B265C-LM is for deeper fishing......from topwater down to well past 1000'.
The B265 of course is a faring mounted unit for boats over 30'.

The TM265 is a trans mount and for those who do more fishing under 500'...but it can read bottom down to about 2000'.

Semper, on a different note II just bought a 2001 Marlin 30 and it came with a Furuno Color LCD Sounder FCV-582-L, a Furuno Radar Model 1731 Mark -3 RDP-099 and a Garmin 740S Plotter sounder. The boat was a one owner, well maintained boat, excellent shape.
The Furuno equipment does not seem to work as well as I would have expected. Does you have any experience with these models and how they compare with today's equipment? The Garmin has a transducer mounted on the stern and
the Furuno transducer is located on the flat spot on the bottom. If the Furuno sounder is outdated and not worth keeping I was thinking of removing it, and the transducer, then puttin a transducer that will work with the Garmin in place of it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am considering a Garmin radar which would plug into the plotter, but again not sure if it is worth the money, when I have the Furuno. Any advice would be appreciated.There is a galvanic protector mounted under the starboard side gunnel. Not sure if it works or what it does. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

In forward bilge area there is always 2-3" of water. I have used a hand pump and pumped it dry, but it always returns. Any suggestions?

As a new owner I would appreciate any advice anyone has to offer.

Hi,
The FCV 582L is a very old unit.....and perhaps the transducer has deteriorated.

You can use a B60 or B164 with the 740s.
For radar..the GMR18HD + or GMR 18xHD.

Personally I would just upgrade to a more current system.

Use a Garmin 942xs and a B75M.
