Took our 1982 GB Motoryacht out yesterday for first run of the season.
As soon as I powered up the Garmin on the Flying Bridge, no depth reading. ---.-Ft
Honestly, I don't know if it has it's own transducer or gets fed from somewhere else. But anyway....
I am down in the ER (single lehman) on the stbd side of the engine there is a transducer. Looks about the size of a can of corn only half as high. The cover is cocked and I can see a tapered transducer inside that is just loose.
I assume this is my problem, but am not sure how to "bed" the transducer to the hull, looks like to me it was just sitting in there, I would have expected different.
Anyway, looking for some basic steps to start the troubleshooting. Also looking for a simple way to install a "backup" depth sounder.
