which depthfinder for kayak

Recommended Posts

hello. i know alot of you VA guys have kayaks and was wondering if you could recommend a depthfinder. ive never used one before so im not sure what to look for other than a color screen. are they waterproof?

im coming home in late may for a vacation (im working overseas) and plan on driving down to farmville and picking up a couple manta ray 12s. maybe hit briery creek lake before heading back up to nova.

thanks in advance

I have a humminbird piranhamax I can't remember the model number off the top of my head but it's the one with the tri-beam, works well when looking at the bottom. I still need to learn to read the thing though.  I've heard color screens can drain batteries pretty fast so I kept away from those.

Nope not waterproof at all I don't think, it'll withstand spray and light rain probably but not being totally submerged

I have a piranghaMAX 240 with a ram mount, minus the ball, that i had on my kayak.  The ball is still on the yak where i sold it. You can buy the ball itself for 12.     Also the setup if you wanted to run it off 8AA batteries.  I am thinking of selling it, let me know if you would be interested.
