My humminbird tranducer creates substantial spray through the gap betwwn the tranducer and the mounting bracket.

I have adjusted it up but do not want to put it up any further because it is tracking bottom well at high speeds now.

Any advice on how to neutralize the spray.

I saw a few things about a lexan or aluminum plate.

Also heard one person say they used a clay or putty of some sort.

ANY PICTURES/ FEEDBACK GREATLY APPRECIATED

also any info as to whether humminbird has responded with any kind of solution as a result of complaints?

thanks,

AC

I am the person who used clay, however, I have switched to a more pemanant solution. I took a hard, square piece of plastic cut to fit over the opening and used two zipties to attatch it. The plastic was actually cut off an old chair mat (the kind you use at your desk that cover the carpet that the chair rolls on). I just layed the cut piece of plastic over the hole where the spray comes through and attacted two zipties all the way around the bracket to hold the platic down. I have had it rigged this way for a couple of weeks now with alot of use and it shows no signs of failing any time soon. I am having camera difficulties but I will post a picture if I get it fixed. Hope this helps.
