A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
I had the transducers for my sounder and log mounted in a hull, but found the sounder signal wasn't great and the log paddle wheel kept catching weed. I'm moving both to a kind of upside down periscope contraption that will hinge down under my cockpit. That way I'll be able to bring it up to clear it, or for when we take the ground. It will be a fibreglass tube with a bulb at the bottom large enough for the transducers, all well streamlined. I'll arrange it in such a way that it can knock up if it gets hit by a lump of driftwood so it doesn't get damaged. Probably make it long enough so the transducers are level with the keels, so they'll be well immersed. Mine will be attached to the underside of the cockpit but it could just as well hang from a beam.
All the best
Thanks Chris, I'll bear those comments in mind as I firm up the design of mine...
cool idea with the fish
This is the fish with new fins and a new lead nose cone.
