Fish Finder for my Yak

...Back in the bad old days when I was getting paid to sail the briney blue...

Rather than bore a hole throught the hull , we found that if you cut the bottom off a Tupperware-type container, and epoxied the cut end to the hull, you could then insert the transponder through the removable top of the container, fill the container with mineral oil (for acoustic coupling), "burp" the lid, and it would work like a champ. Only problem might be a little bit of signal attenuation because of the hull thickness and material. Might be worth a shot though. Hmm...wonder of I could set one up in the stern of my Pungo...

Best regards,

-Doc
