Hi HF.

Sorry to hear your feeling a bit uncle dick out on the Kayak.
Was this a one off, or are you prone to sea sickness??
See from your post that you were busy with the Mackerel, could have somthing to do with it.
Having your head down looking into the Yak while dealing with the fish could make you feel a little sick. :(
If you continue to feel ill on the Kayak, try some "Sea Bands" you can get them fom a chandlers, or via the net I expect.

Yakity. :)

Hi HF,
I've never had a problem, mine kept popping off by itself, and it's been stuck down with Devcon 2 Ton, Araldite, WEST,and the surface has beeen prepared with abrasive paper and Acetone.
Getting the excesss off the Transducer is the real b****r!
I've found careful use of a Stanley Knife the best.
Have fun! :D
BTW I think I may have found some new epoxy to do the job, pours like water and takes about 48 hours to set, I'll report back when mine is installed again. :P
