Re: B & G Depth Sounder

Gary Silver

Hello Hajo:

My SM #335 has the depth sounder wired to the B & G Hydra 2000 computer at the nav station with orange/white wire going to terminal 30 and orange/green wire going to terminal 29.  These are solder tinned wires that fit under a clamping terminal strip.  If yours is similar you might look at those connections for any signs of oxidation or corrosion.  Perhaps treat the terminals with Corrosion X after inspecting them.  Any signs of cable chafe or other intermittency in the cabling (excessive bends etc)?  I do not believe there is a connector at the transducer but I don't recall for sure, if there is one then an inspection of the pins and sockets of such would be helpful.  Clean up those contacts if they exist. 

All the best,
