Transducer lives to fight another day

Recommended Posts

I snapped the neck on my trolling motor mounted transducer when I rammed it into the rocks this week. It's an older Lawrence unit that has the transducer and power cable together so buying a replacement would cost almost as much as just going to Walmart and buying the cheapest new Humminbird. I decided to try and salvage it, but I figured that just gluing it back together with JB Weld would only last until the next branch or rock. 

 

I scrounged around and found a bar of 1/2 wide Al. I drilled a small hole in the transducer neck and found the smallest machine screw in my parts drawer to go through it. I cut one piece for each side and added a big gob of JB Weld so it can't shift, then tightened up the nut. Once it hardens I can put it back into place and the repair might actually be stronger than the original neck was. I figure this saved at least $50 at the cost of maybe 1/2 hour of work.
