Hey all you new 170 Montauk owners - Boat coming 29 JULY. Don't know whether to buy the fishfinder and let the dealer install or install it myself. Dealer carries only Hummingbird which I didn't particularly care for. A little worried about screwing into the brand new hull for the transducer.

What brand did you buy and who did the install, you or the dealer?

Thanks.

Dealer installed Simrad CE-33 combination unit (GPS-WAAS/fishfinder).

You may void your warranty if not installed by a dealer. Just a little heads up. Regards, Jay

There are no warranty issues with self installed fish finders, radios etc. The warranty will be honored regardless of who installs it.

Rather than mount the ducer directly to the transom attach it to a piece of starboard and then attach the starboard to the transom.
If you have to reposition the ducer a couple extra holes in the starboard won't hurt anything.

SSFW,
I purchased a Garmin 240 Blue and had my dealer install it.

Void the warranty?! I don't think so.

Pay your dealer to install it for you?! No way. You'd just be letting him have all the fun!
