Lowrance Ready - Square peg in a round hole

Postby imnotoriginal » Tue Apr 29, 2014 5:25 pm

Recently upgraded to a newer model revo which is Lowrance Ready. Wasn't keen on the Lowrance myself and ended up getting a Humminbird instead.

I have now encountered this issue trying to make it fit.

Any thoughts on how I can get around this? Should I consider siliconing the transducer in place or is there a less ramshackle way of doing it?

Thanks

Not sure how well the picture shows it but the shape of the transducer prevents it fitting between the mounts.

The transducer has a big fat bum. :lol:

Excellent. I wonder how much that costs. Cheers for the heads up :-)

Cheers Jarrad,

Not as hard on the hip pocket as expected.
