removing epoxied transducer

Recommended Posts

hey. i have the transducer epoxied to the bilge, but now im thinking about selling the unit to upgrade. how do i remove the transducer without damaging it or the fiberglass its epoxied to??

i know i could just cut the cable and purchase another one, but the price of the transducer on amazon is more than $100, and im selling the unit for $130 so getting another transducer to sell it is not an option. 

the unit is a humminbird  587ci HD DI and the transducer is the DI version, XNT 9 DI T. 

thanx!

I've heard to heat the epoxy, take a block of wood, put it against the transducer, then tap the block with the hammer. I'd say you'll want to go easy on the heat and the hammer for the sake of the transducer and the hull. 

Ive not done it myself but when I was looking into doing it that's what I came up with.

I have done this without the heat. It took surprisingly little effort to knock the xducer loose. Get as parallel to the hull as you can with the block of wood. Getting the epoxy off the xducer may be the hard part.
