Hi all

Has anyone installed a Lowrance HDI Mid/High/DownScan Transom Mount Transducer 83/200/455/800kHz in to the bottom of their Ocean Kayak?

This is not the Trident with brass inserts, this is the Ocean Kayak Prowler Ultra 4.3.

Size-wise it looks to be a good fit, but i'm worried about dealing with the transducer chord that comes out of the front rather than the top of the transducer.

Thanks in advance

For those interested.

This is the finished result.

20ft cable tucked into scupper hole absolutely fine.

I sealed the top of the transducer to the bottom of the scupper hole (after a bit of surface prep) with Sikaflex 291.

Used my existing Ocean Kayak transducer scupper holder.

Happy days
