ID:	27749 Hey there. I've got a little accomplished over the past couple weeks as time allows. Replaced exhaust galvanized pipe with 3" trident hose. Replaced shaft log hose. Repacked shaft and rudder. Strut bearing felt fine. Decided to clean and keep the tiller arm for a few more seasons. Replaced valve on raw water inlet.

    Now for the question about the thru hull transducer.
    I've never had one like this and was wondering if someone could look at the picture and fill me in on this type?

    I've had tranzom mount, thru hull with a threaded brass mount, ive even placed a transom mount transducer in a container of water and shot thru the hull of a crab boat i had. Never one like this one though. Click image for larger version

    Airmar B744V possibly.
    May be some installation instructions somewhere online that may help to determine the reverse procedure to get it out.

        There was one in the 31 when I got it. I hooked it up to a Garmin 585. Worked great. Look at the plug, that will tell you what machine it will go to. Adaptors are made so you can hook it to just about any machine. Tell me what the plug looks like and I'll look it up for you. 8 pin, 7 pin, etc. Take a picture. There is a plug for when you remove it.

          Jerry used the term plug for the electronic connection and the removable transducer. The transducer can be removed and an addition blank plug installed in it's place.

            The boat came with 2 dated lowrance units.
            An xc_111 and an xc-104.

            Just thinking ahead and wondering whether to keep this transducer or update at some point. But if its decent I'll keep it. I'm not fishing much anymore so a top of the line high resolution one isn't really needed..
            I know one lowrance unit powers up to logo screen and locks up. Haven't tried the other yet.

            While doing the exhaust replacement I cut out about a 10" glass crack just after of the engine mount.
            The wood was a little wet on top...but rock solid.. i let it dry out for a few days and glassed her up....."Fix" would be proud!
