If you are not going to be installing another in-hull transducer then it's best to just leave them be. If you do not have the room to add one if you are wanting to then you will need to commence on chipping away with a hammer an flat head screw driver.
It's all coming together and we have you covered @ Shut-Up-And-Fish LLC
for all your Humminbird, Minn Kota & Motorguide needs.
We install & educate as well!!! 972 822 9285
