Can't find the $%*#&*^% Transducer! The ’95 Skeeter SX-150 has three decks. Top deck to stand on, the lower well that your feet are on when you sit and the gas tank and batteries set, and then under this deck. The transducer should be somewhere near the back between the live well pumps at the transom and the bulge pump, but I can find it with the camera. The transducer wire goes down the hole under the live wells behind the batteries.
Not sure which is easier (harder-neither is easy): pulling the batteries, battery rack, gas tank and standing on your head to do the work ; or removing the boat’s top deck and bump trim then replacing bulge pump, live well pumps, and in hull transducer.
Humminbird suggested flooding the hull with a little water and see if the transducer works to eliminate a failed installation. Maybe I should hook up another head unit to eliminate a bad HB side imaging firmware upgrade; lots of folks had this problem with the March upgrade. I noticed they came out with another firmware update, will upload it today and see if that fixes the problem, then let a little water in the hull and see if that helps.
Gota Love an Old Boat as is Bring On Another Thousand ! But then again, getting a new boat is like getting a new wife—possible a whole set of new problems and expenses. Always better to work things out.
