1.2 Installation of Antenna Unit
Mounting considerations
Install the antenna unit referring to the installation diagram on page D-3 or D-4.
When selecting a mounting location for the antenna unit, keep in mind the following points:
•
Select a location out of the radar beam. The radar beam will obstruct or prevent
reception of the GPS satellite signal.
•
The location should be well away from a VHF antenna. A GPS receiver is interfered by a harmonic wave of a VHF antenna.
•
There should be no interfering object within the line-of-sight to the satellites.
Objects within line-of-sight to a satellite, for example, a mast, may block reception or prolong acquisition time.
•
Mount the antenna unit as high as possible. Mounting the antenna unit as high
as possible keeps it free of interfering objects and water spray, which can interrupt reception of GPS satellite signal if the water freezes.
•
The length of the whip antenna for the GP-1850DF should be no longer than
1.2 meter to prevent antenna damage. Do not use a 2.5 meter whip antenna.
•
If the antenna cable is to be passed through a hole which is not large enough to
pass the connector, you may unfasten the connector with a needle nose pliers
and 3/8-inch open-end wrench. Refasten it as shown in Figure 1-4 after running the cable through the hole.

1.3 Installation of Transducers
Installing the inside-hull mount transducer
Necessary tools
You will need the following tools:
•
Sandpaper (#100)
•
Silicone sealant
Remarks on installation
•
Do the installation with the boat hauled out of the water.
•
Turn off the engine while installing the equipment.
•
Install the transducer in the engine room.
Selecting the mounting location
Keep the following points in mind when selecting a mounting location:
•
The mounting location should be where the hull is of single-hull thickness and
is void of air or flotation materials other than solid fiberglass between the transducer face and the water.
•
Do not place the transducer over hull struts or ribes which run under the hull.
•
Avoid a location where the rising angle of the hull exceeds 15°, to minimize the
effect of the boat’s rolling.
•
You will finalize the mounting location through some trial and error. The procedure for this is shown later.

Installing the thru-hull mount transducer
Transducer mounting location
This type of mounting provides the best performance of all, since the transducer
protrudes from the hull and the effect of air bubbles and turbulence neat the hull
skin is reduced. When the boat has a keel, the transducer should be at least 30 cm
away from it. Typical through hull mountings are shown in the figure on the next
page.
The performance of the video sounder is directly related to the mounting location
of the transducer, especially for high-speed cruising. The installation should be
planned in advance, keeping the standard cable length (8 m) and the following
factors in mind:
•
Air bubbles and turbulence caused by movement of the boat seriously degrade
the sounding capability of the transducer. The transducer should, therefore, be
located in a position where water flow is the smoothest. Noise from the propellers also adversely affects performance and the transducer should not be
mounted nearby. The lifting strakes are notorious for creating acoustic noise,
and these must be avoided by keeping the transducer inboard of them.
•
The transducer must always remain submerged, even when the boat is rolling,
pitching or up on a plane at high speed.
•
A practical choice would be somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of the boat's length
from the stern. For planing hulls, a practical location is generally rather far astern,
so that the transducer is always in water regardless of the planing attitude.

Procedure for installing the thru-hull mount transducer
1. With the boat hauled out of the water, mark the location selected for mounting
the transducer on the bottom of the hull.
2. If the hull is not level within 15° in any direction, fairing blocks made out of teak
should be used between the transducer and hull, both inside and outside, to
keep the transducer face parallel with the water line. Fabricate the fairing block
as shown below and make the entire surface as smooth as possible to provide
an undisturbed flow of water around the transducer. The fairing block should be
smaller than the transducer itself to provide a channel to divert turbulent water
around the sides of the transducer rather than over its face.

Figure 1-15 Construction of fairing block
3. Drill a hole just large enough to pass the threaded stuffing tube of the transducer through the hull, making sure it is drilled vertically.
4. Apply a sufficient amount of high quality caulking compound to the top surface
of the transducer, around the threads of the stuffing tube and inside the mounting hole (and fairing blocks if used) to ensure watertight mounting.
5. Mount the transducer and fairing blocks and tighten the locking nuts. Be sure
that the transducer is properly oriented and its working face is parallel to the
waterline.
Note: Do not over-stress the stuffing tube and locking nuts through excessive tight-
ening, since the wood block will swell when the boat is placed in the water. It is
suggested that the nut be tightened lightly at installation and retightened several
days after the boat has been launched.
1-10
Installing the transom mount transducer
This type of mounting is very commonly employed, usually on relatively small I/O
or outboard boats. Do not use this method on an inboard motor boat because
turbulence is created by the propeller ahead of the transducer.
There are two methods of installation: flush with hull (for flat hulls) and projecting
from hull (for deep V-hulls).

Figure 1-16 Transom mount transducer mounting locations
Installing the transom mount transducer flush with hull
(for flat hulls)
A suitable mounting location is at least 50 cm away from the engine and where the
water flow is smooth.
1. Drill four pilot holes in the mounting location.
2. Attach the transducer to the bracket with tapping screws (supplied).
3. Adjust the transducer position so the transducer faces right to the seabed.
Note: If necessary, to improve water flow and minimize air
bubbles staying on the transducer face, incline the transducer about 5° at the rear. This may require a certain amount
of experimentation for fine tuning at high cruising speeds.
4. Fill the gap between the wedge front of the transducer and transom with epoxy
material to eliminate any air spaces.

Installing the transom mount transducer projecting from hull
(for deep-V hulls)
This method is employed on deep-V hulls and provides good performance because the effects of air bubbles are minimal. Install the transducer parallel with
water surface; not flush with hull. If the boat is placed on a trailer care must be
taken not to damage the transducer when the boat is hauled out of the water and
put on the trailer.

Transducer preparation
Before putting the boat in water, wipe the face of the transducer thoroughly with a
detergent liquid soap. This will lessen the time necessary for the transducer to
have good contact with the water. Otherwise the time required for complete "saturation" will be lengthened and performance will be reduced.
Do not paint the transducer. Performance will be affected.

Model P66
U.S. Patents: 4,555,938; 4,644,787; 5,606,253; Des. 334,335
Canadian Patent 1,233,341
IMPORTANT Please read the instructions completely before
proceeding with the installation. These directions supersede
any other instructions in your instrument manual if they differ.
Applications
Pre-test for Speed and Temperature
• Powerboats with outboard, inboard, inboard/outboard, or jet drive.
Not recommended for boats with large or twin screw inboard motor.
• Bracket protects the sensor form frontal impact only
Connect the sensor to the instrument and spin the paddlewheel. Check
for a speed reading and the approximate air temperature. If there is no
reading, return the sensor to your place of purchase.
Mounting Location
• Good operation up to 44kn (50MPH)
To ensure the best performance, the sensor must be submerged in
aeration-free and turbulence-free water. Mount the sensor close to the
centerline of the boat. On slower heavier displacement hulls, positioning
it farther from the centerline is acceptable.
• Orients the sound beam vertically on hulls with a
deadrise angle up to 30°
• Adjusts to transom angles from 2-22°
Allow adequate space above the bracket for it to release and rotate the
sensor upward (see Figure 1).

At the selected location, position the template, so the arrow at the
bottom is aligned with the bottom edge of the transom. Being sure
the template is parallel to the waterline, tape it in place
(see Figure 3).
Warning: Always wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
Drill at locations labeled "A"
for the following transom angles:
2° through 15°
Align arrow with bottom of transom
3.
Using a 4mm, #23, or 9/64” bit, drill three holes 22mm (7/8”) deep
at the locations indicated. To prevent drilling too deeply, wrap
masking tape around the bit 22mm (7/8”) from the point.
Fiberglass hull—Minimize surface cracking by chamfering the
gelcoat. If a chamfer bit or countersink bit is not available, start
drilling with a 6mm or 1/4” bit to a depth of 1mm (1/16”).
4.
If you know your transom angle—The bracket is designed for a
standard 13° transom angle.
11°-18° angle—No shim is required. Skip to “Adjusting”, step 3.
Other angles—The shim is required. Skip to “Adjusting”, step 2.
If you do not know the transom angle—Temporarily attach the
bracket and sensor to the transom to determine if the plastic shim is
needed.

1-3mm (1/16-1/8”) below the bow of the sensor or parallel to the
bottom of the hull (see Figure 5).
Caution: Do not position the bow of the sensor lower than the
stern because aeration will occur.

Warning: Always wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
1.
If a hole must be drilled, choose a location well above the waterline.
Check for obstructions such as trim tabs, pumps, or wiring inside
the hull. Mark the location with a pencil. Drill a hole through the
transom using a 19mm or 3/4” bit (to accommodate the connector).
2.
Route the cable over or through the transom.
3.
On the outside of the hull secure the cable against the transom
using the cable clamps. Position a cable clamp 50mm(2”) above the
bracket and mark the mounting hole with a pencil (see Figure 6).
4.
Position the second cable clamp halfway between the first clamp
and the cable hole. Mark this mounting hole.
5.
If a hole has been drilled in the transom, open the appropriate slot
in the transom cable cover. Position the cover over the cable where
it enters the hull. Mark the two mounting holes.
6.
At each of the marked locations, use a 3mm or 1/8” bit to drill a
hole 10mm (3/8”) deep. The prevent drilling too deeply, wrap
masking tape around the bit 10mm (3/8”) from the point.
7.
Apply marine sealant to the threads of the #6 x 1/2” self-tapping
screw to prevent water from seeping into the transom. If you have
drilled a hole through the transom, apply marine sealant to the
space around the cable where it passes through the transom.
8.
Position the two cable clamps and fasten them in place. If used,
push the cable cover over the cable and screw it in place.
9.
Route the cable to the instrument being careful not to tear the cable
jacket when passing it though the bulkhead(s) and other parts of the
boat. To reduce electrical interference, separate the sensor
cable from other electrical wiring and “noise” sources. Coil any
excess cable and secure it in place with zip-ties to prevent damage.

To adjust the sensor’s angle relative to the hull, use the tapered
plastic shim provided. If the bracket has been temporarily fastened
to the transom, remove it, Key the shim in place on the back of the
bracket.
2°-10° transom angle (stepped transom and jet boats)—Position
the shim with the tapered end down.
19°-22° transom angle (small aluminum and fiberglass boats)—
Position the shim with the tapered end up.
If the bracket has been temporarily fastened to the transom,
remove it. Apply a marine sealant to the threads of the two
#10 x 1-1/4” self tapping screws to prevent water seeping into the
transom. Screw the bracket to the hull. Do not tighten the screws
completely at this time.
10. Refer to your echosounder owner’s manual to connect the sensor
to the instrument.
Repeat step 1 to ensure that the angle of the sensor is correct.
Caution: Do not position the sensor farther into the water than
necessary to avoid increasing drag, spray, and water noise and
reducing boat speed.
