    Need fishfinder installed

    Hello everyone, I'm building an all electric fishing boat. I have a Tracker Topper 14' with a MinnKota electric outboard motor and a PowerDrive V2 trolling motor. I bought a Lowrance Elite 5X CHIRP and I think it's beyond my installation experience. Looking for someone to install and setup. I live in Mt. Washington. Thanks

    you should be able to handle that..............

    silicone where you mount the transducer, if you put it on the hull, if on the trolling motor, don't worry about it.

    you might want a different battery supply for the finder though,since the magnetic interference with the TM and the finder on a single battery might cause you grief.

    Be sure to run some conduit for the power to the battery, just to make it clean.......

    Have FUN.

    Need fish finder installed

    I found a couple of videos on youtube. I attempted to install yore Lowrance Elite5X Chirp on my 14' all lactic jon boat. I guess my biggest concern was lacing the unit in the boat for maximum usage.I got it done, didn't burn down the boat or garage. Now to learn how to use it correctly. Thanks for your help.
