  1. Thanks for the replies. I had looked at both the Lowrance and Garmin units. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to mount the transducer in side the hull. There is an existing through hull where a speed log used to be so I could possibly use that?

  2. Hi all. I am wanting to get a simple, reasonably priced  depth sounder for my trailer yacht. All I can seem to find are fish finders. I’m not a fisherman, I’m a sailor. Dedicated depth sounders are too expensive. 
    Any advice please?

  3. Hi all


    Wondering if anyone has knowledge of Lake Pearson in the SI? It is on the eastern side of the divide as you head toward Arthur's Pass. Looked like it could be ok for a trailer yacht for a weekend?

  4. Actually he has been very supportive through the process! He deserves :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :clap: :clap: :clap: Especially having to put up with me! :lol:

    It's great that you have a supportive partner, well done to both of you :clap: . It's not easy staying friends and remaining supportive when you're working long hours. Make sure you take some time out away from the project so you don't suffer a burnout.

    Remember, even though you're young, your efficiency will drop as you get more tired. You could be working 18 hour days but only achieving what you would in 12 hours with more rest and relaxation. Believe me, I've been there, more than once or twice.

    Anyway, enough preaching from me, we don't even know each other. Good luck with the project, I think it's wonderful that you have the courage to tackle it. And btw, I have liked your Fb page. It's only narcissistic for the people who want it to be. For me, it's a means of communication between me and my family on the dark side of the globe.

  5. Hey Scubash. Will you marry me? I've been wishing for a woman like you all my life. :wink:

    Good luck with everything. :thumbup:


    Ha :lol:


    Well first off....how good are you with tools? Sailing? What baggage do you come with? Are you hot? How old are you? :think: :P


    Don't think my partner would be to happy if I turned around and married you... BUt hey maybe in a month he will be running away from me, so stay tuned! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


    I'm an engineer, so I'm good with tools. Been sailing about 25 years...Only baggage I have is a carry on with my sailing gear. Am I hot? Well, I'm Italian :wink: Age is just a number, but I'm over 25.

    Sorry about your partner. I hope he has GSOH. :)
