Installing the transducer
Here is the other split part of the mount all bedded and secured with the transducer nut and the anti-spin bolt. All aspects of the surfaces are well coated and set in with 3M-5200. Whew, what a job. I will install the plug after everything dries. The paddle wheel sensor for water speed looks a little vulnerable to the carry strap. I think I will swap out the plug for the paddle wheel after I am in the water.
It has been a nerve wracking job because of time constraints and worries about 5200 contamination. I am relieved that it all went relatively well and I am completely certain that no leaks will occur.
