So, this is the sonar I intend to purchase when I get my PA; and with the help of another member, I have acquired the measurements of the mirage drivewell; to which I have concluded that the transducer should just fit....
My plan (because I don't keep things top secret) is to build a custom plug with the transducer molded in it, to some degree. Just for a nice and clean look.
Here's where I need some assistance. As I am a fish finder noob.
What plane does the transducer acquire it's images. Just the bottom, the bottom and sides, some of the top as well? I ask because with this idea, I do not want to cause interference if the transducer was embeded into the plug to some degree.
For instance, if I were to embed the transducer to the mold line on the side, would it interfere or be obstructed?
Another option would be the thru hull, to which same questions of embedding would apply.
Best thing about all of this is, I don't necessarily need a boat to do it, just a plug
The process is to be determined....more than likely it'll be a combination of cast moulds, and resin infusion.
And I know some of you are probably asking, where would you put the pedals....my answer, probably in the forward storage bin as if I were to mount a transducer here, the PA would be powered by a trolling motor or some other form of propulsion
Maybe I can get Michael Phelps to just hold on to the back handle and kick
**updated because I posted the wrong transducer, and posted another transducer pic.
