Transducer Cable Question

5 posts in this topic

While installing my transducer I noticed a large nick in the cable right by transducer. It was probably rubbing all last year and I didn't notice it when I removed it. I assume that it's still working as it was when I pulled it off. What's the best way to protect the cable? I can see the insulated wire inside. Some kind of silicone, tape, or something else? Shrink tubing won't fit over the transducer. Any idea's?

I'd try some neoprene dip or liquid electric tape followed by some tight wraps of electrical tape. That way it's an adhesive type of bond instead of just a wrap of tape.

Ditto marine man's advice.

Sounds like a good start. You want to make the seal watertight as possible to avoid contamination.
