Hey everyone, finally have got a sounder lined up after 3 years fishing without one. I have a few questions about installing one for my kayak.
I have a Profish 400 lite.
Where do you store your battery?
Where can i put the transducer as it doesn't fit into the 400 slot underneath the hull?
And what do you do to make all the wiring water tight?

Thanks for reading

Have a look here, the only difference is for the DF transducer you are going to need to do an internal install > http://www.vikingkayaks.co.nz/kayaking+ ... rofish+400

A different idea for battery storage

Unfortunately my kayak was stolen, but up until that point the battery pod was a very convenient system.
