  • hole for transducer cable under water line

    As I upgraded my old furuno FF, I had to replace my old transducer. I discovered that they had drill a hole on the bottom and ran the cable through it and filled it with clear silicone. How common was this practice back in the day? Hull is a 1994 241 with the euro transom. For now I ran it back in but used 5200. Though I am no keen on that idea.

        Yeah I dont like that either. Cannot be run differently? If not Id pull that cable out, epoxy in a PVC tube that is just large enough to accept the cable, feed the cable through the tube and seal on both sides with sealant.

          whoever did that is a dullard..that cable should have been run in through the transom up above the water line and sealed and covered with a clam shell cover...
