Re: Cable and Clam Glands

Finished this little project off with the dry bag with waterproof "bulgin" connectors, pretty happy with result just need to try the whole thing out on the water, just hope I haven't trapped any bubbles under the transducer but fairly confident I didn't. Few pics of the final set up. https://uploads...

Re: Arkles Bay

Nice TR and a solid result, sometimes when the baitfish are being chased they head for objects like logs, weeds or kayaks. Had it happen to me a few times so perhaps whatever the ky were feeding on found you attractive, hence them popping up where you were? Mainly used my FF to find structure rather...

Re: Cable and Clam Glands

Had a good hunt around for these Index Marine waterproof plugs on the web, and couldn't find a retailer in NZ, but this place [urlhttp://www.aquavolt.com.au/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=bulgin&search_in_description=1&InputGo.x=0&InputGo.y=0&InputGo=GO[/url] in Aussie sell them so will most li...

Re: Cable and Clam Glands

Nice thinking that is a really good workaround, if I can't locate those.

Re: Cable and Clam Glands

Just another question, saw this http://dizzybigfish.co.uk/diy-waterproof-battery-bag-for-kayak-fishing/ and thought it was a neat idea as my power lead terminals have always corroded over time and thought this might be a better solution as I want to store the battery inside the kayak hull. The only ...

Re: Cable and Clam Glands

As suggested Burnsco had just the thing, wasn't cheap tho, but looks solid and waterproof. IMG_5302.jpg IMG_5303.jpg IMG_5304.jpg IMG_5305.jpg The Transducer seems pretty happy in its new housing, might have over done it with the Selleys All Clear tho?

Re: Cable and Clam Glands

Thanks Chaps - The Scanstrut ones look more waterproof to me as they have that rubber bung type of thing built in. Although I prefer the fact the cable comes out sideways on the one on the viking site, maybe there one with both the bung and the ability for the wire to come out at a right angle? trip...

Re: Ocean Kayak Trident 15 (2017)

looks very smart that yak, is that seat a new design haven't seen it or is it a custom job? looks pretty snazzy. What is under the front of the seat, some kind of spring?

It was th...
