Snapped Transducer

8 posts in this topic

Standard Eagle/Lowrance transducer snapped during my outing yesterday. Basically broke off right at the pin. Has anyone successfully epoxied these back together. Or is is a waste of my time?

Funny, same thing happened to me today on my bow mount. I used epoxy on it tonight. I will let you know how well it held. I have my doubts that it will hold throughout the summer.

I did the same thing last year. I had to get a new one. It was a pain because I had to fish the wire all the way to my dash.

What does it look like and which type is it ? I might have a couple transducers with no mount here.

I am looking at a HS-WSX here in front of me.

Looks like I need HST-WSU.

I'm suprised (ok, a little anyway since you run the river) that it snapped as compared to flipping up and out of the way.

Did you have the rubber washers installed and not overtigtened so it could flip up when it hit something?

Actually I have a small 14ft alum boat, and the cord runs through one of the handles in back. I think a stick got caught up in the cord loop as I was snaking around in a small creek.

I'll try to epoxy it, then buy a new one I guess if that don't work.

well, I tried some marine epoxy. Seems to be holding very good. Next test is the water.

Thanks

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
