One thing to remember on the carpet, Matt. Mine is ribbed rubber on the underside so any water that seeps through or under can run out so you don't have water puddling on the deck...Just an FYI.

Ok, question for the tech guys. I just bought a lowrance HDS10

I am looking at the Airmar 1Kw bronze thru-hull transducer. It's going to cost around AU$1,300 which was expected from previous research.

Then I see a transducer for structure scan and that's about AU$1,000 then I need to buy all the associated structure scan modules etc

My question is, do I need to buy both transducers or can I just get the structure scan one. I can't tell if the structure scan one reads temps or depths etc or is purely structure imagining.

The web is full of info but nothing that answers my questions.

Thought I'd try here before going to lowrance or Airmar cause I know what they'll say. Yeah mate you need both (wether I do or not)

Matt, yes it will. Not sure about temp though. I'd just go with the B164, all that stuff scan this chirp that is a little overrated IMO.

I've got the snap on carpet, as well. Definitely the way to go if you want carpet.

Much easier to clean by pulling it up and giving it a good hose down after a day out squidding.

B260 has my vote, that's what I'd put on my boat. But I fish I. Deep water a lot, you may fish in shallower. You really can't go wrong with any of them.

Ok so this afternoon I headed down to do some sanding. OMFG I don't know what it is with this latest roll of 450gsm tape but when I was rolling out the glass to cut to size the other day i was splintering up really bad and now when I sanded it HOLY HELL it drive me mental. So much so I could only bear 1.5 hrs of it and had to race home and jump in the shower. This is on top of the PPE I was wearing.

The glass shop says it's the same gear I always get but I call Bullsh*t.

It acted differently going down and now this. I've got so much more to sand too! Grrrrr

Anyway after I alighted from the shower and my scratching hell, I saw I had an eBay present arrive.

If anyone is looking for badges, give this bloke a go. I was impressed with the quality and the price.

Anyway that's all. Can't scratch and type at the same time.

Cheers
Hendo

My Lowrance arrived today. And it fits. Yaay

I've decided to remove the black acrylic because it scratches soooooo easily. Wiped it with s rag and it scratched. That would piss me off to no end so off it came.

Have sourced some powder coated aluminium and looks mint. Need to router it but will come up a treat.

I will be lining the toilet in it in gloss white too.

Matt me mate!


Love the way you have 1/2 used roll of TP for "head" designation purposes... guess that's so when you get dizzy from turning around on all the things you simultaneously accomplish you then have a bearing point for true north! Or something like that - LOL!


Keep it up bro. You'll suddenly reach the short strokes on this glorious boat refurbishment project. If I hadn't seen this done with my own eyes I would have hard time believing a story like this. TY soooo much for continued picts and play by play descriptions!
