How many of you take your graphs completely off your boat after every trip? I only have a nice awning to store my boat. Its covered on 3 sides. I know i probably should remove them but I find myself getting lazy after fishing all day and have been leaving them connected on boat.

Keep doing that , eventually someone will remove them for you. smile

I always remove mine, but my boat is in a lift on the water.

I take mine off and on every time. I do not even travel down the road with them on the boat. I bought a plastic Plano ammo storage box from BPS, put some foam in it and store them in there when not on the boat.
I find it to be cheap and easy protection.

I take mine out every time and put them in a padded dry box that I cut out. Trying to keep them lasting as long as possible. [Linked Image]

I use a soft tactical rifle case. My 3 - 12" Carbons fit in there end to end exactly.

I take mine off every time and keep them in the garage. Used to have a dash mount unit that I would leave on but the bow units and main console unit come off the boat while its stored.

Mine stay on the boat. I have never had any issues but if I do, that is why I pay for insurance

Exactly what I do too. It’s too much work and it’s hard on the cables.

Mine stay on year around as I keep the boat in my shop, if it's a real long trip like to Mexico then I will remove them.

I have 5 on my boat and I have never taken mine off except at a motel that seems a little shady.. All mine have two lock rings on them…I know they still can break them off, but as someone noted above, that’s why I have insurance.
I do run mine with the rubber covers when towing them and in the garage. Plus I keep a good quality cover on my boat too.

Put Dura locks on them and good screen covers.

The quick release cradle was one of the reasons I went with the Echomap series graphs and after just a few months I had a pin bend and break on me. Luckily Garmin replaced my unit at no cost but needless to say I remove the whole gimbal mount and unhook the cables every time now....lol
