Transducer wire cut

Question

toonfish

Somehow, while the boat was in storage my wire to the transducer got cut......can i just fuse this back together or do I need to get a whole new wire.....I tried to electrical tape it back together to test it, but got no depth reading, there are two separate wires beneath the original coating, should I wrap these seperately and try it?

I've tried splicing before and it usually wont work. It is a very sensitive wire and altering resistance, ie. soldering or crimping the wires, will cause interference. it never hurts to try though. just make sure the two wires dont contact each other

I was told it couldn't and shouldn't be done, however because I needed it NOW and couldn't wait for a replacement to be shipped I tried a repair. I twisted each wire together and soldered the twists. I then used shrink wrap on each wire finshing with a long piece of shrink wrap on the outside. It worked for me and I now have the new transducer in the spare parts cabinet.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
