"I have installed transom mount transducers on a swing down leg. That has worked well. I swing it up at high speeds. All in all I prefer a nodule on the inner side of the hull."

"Hello Rob. I think I’ll keep to the periscope stick install and abandon the tow fish concept. I definitely need to refine my approach. If I ever get anything to work I will post some pics. Thanks for your response Chris"

"Hello Rob. I took the tow fish and mounted it on a stick and stuck it in the water going around 8knots. I was really surprised at the amount of drag generated. It took considerable force to maintain its attitude in the water. A lot of air traveled…"

"Hello Andrew I put the jacks under the beams near the hulls four of them. I have heard of using large overinflated fenders to roll cats up to the hard. I would like to hear how it goes for you."

Tiki 30 transducer

I have a chart plotter depthfinder that came with a transome mounted skimmer type transducer. I mounted the transducer on a tow fish that I made. It looks cool but alas to no avail I am unable to get it stable at higher speeds. It dives hard,cavitates and flips over then hits the boat. I could always install a though hull transducer in the conventional manner. But I really would rather not go that route. I would appreciate any ideas and experience with any alternative transducer mounts Thanks

HI Chris, I love your tramp. I am thinking of emulating it on my Pahi when the time comes. Can you tell me something about the webbing and how it is attached to itself?

 

Regards

 

Bill

Thanks Chris

 

Did you weld it yourself? How? How did you get it coated in vinyl?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Chris, how do those beam lashings you use work out? I'm looking for webbing straps, but did not succeed to find suitable and also affordable ones yet.

Best regards,

Jeroen
