Rigging the kayak with a transducer:
This is the plumber’s putty I used for fixing the transducer in the hull. It cost $1.99
First I made a ring of putty in the bottom of the hull. The ring is big enough to put my transducer in.
Then I put the transducer in and added a little water for good contact with the hull.
I then covered the transducer with more putty and sealed it up.
The putty sealed really well with the kayak’s hull. There was no water leakage.
I got a good signal through the hull, and it was cheap and fast to do. I can also peel it off real fast with no residue left behind.
And this is how I improved comfort:
I picked up a yoga mat from my local Good Will store for $2.00.
I used double faced carpet tape on the bench.
I cut the mat to fit the bench seat and laid it down.
It made for a nice soft seat and it’s not slippery.
Here’s my “W” at the lake ready to go:
I live in one of those houses that are on the hillside in the background.
The “W” is a great boat to sneak up on wildlife.
This is a beautiful lake just to be on. (Willow Lake Prescott Arizona.)
