Hi team,

I have just sold my trusty P13 and moved up to a Prowler Ultra 4.3 :D which I receive this week. I have a Lowrance Elite 4x DSI (with the 83/200 kHz and 455/800 kHz transducer).

The Ultra doesn't have the brass fittings in the transducer scupper.

What is the best way of mounting the transducer in a OK 4.3. Do you need to buy the Lowrance Scupper kit or is there an alternative transducer mount (DIY?)

Sorry if this questioned has already been answered before but I trawled through the forums and couldn't find anything specific about how to mount a DSI transducer. Any pics and info appreciated.

Cheers

Thinking of using some sort of PVC tube to hold in scupper.

Contact Cameron Sports Imports in auckland as they are now the importer for OK....someone there should be able to help u.
My 4.3 is one of the early NZ made ones and has the brass inserts for installing the transducer. After they discovered a few that sprung leaks as a result of these inserts they dropped putting them in and from memory future installs were done by just screwing the mounting bracket on and putting a dollp of selleys all clear on the inside of the hull to help prevent leaks
