Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Forward Sonar

Hi Alan. I had a new interphase transducer fitted on the center line. I couldnt give you the measurement but I noticed it is much more than hull normal thickness. It seemed the v had a reinforced impact protection thickness. Sorry cant be more help.

We have an Interphase Probe forward looking sonar on Elyse that has given up. We replaced the transducer a few years ago and it worked sort of, for a while, but now it doesn't at all...except when the boat isn't moving, then it works sometimes.

I'm going to replace it with a Navico forward scan transducer and a B&G Vulcan FS display.

The probe transducer is on the centre line forward of the depth sounder.

I know that the Navico transducer housing is a larger diameter than the probe threaded stem, but what concerns me a bit is the thickness of the hull there. 

Does anyone know how thick the hull is at that point on a Super Maramu ?
