Author Topic:   Transducer Mount Using KING StarBoard

I am thinking of mounting my new [AIRMAR] P58 transducer on a piece of [KING StarBoard]. What thickness of [KING StarBoard] do you suggest? And how is the [KING StarBoard] attached to a hull that has been already bottom paint?

ASIDE: I can't find where [I] read about that here before.

Thanks,

John

ASIDE: To locate previous discussions that contain the words "transducer" "transom" "mount" and "KING StarBoard" use this search:

http://continuouswave.com/cgi-bin/sw.pl?Search=%22KING+StarBoard%22+ transducer+transom+mount

It finds 22 articles that contain those words.

Please note we always use the full trade name of "KING StarBoard" to refer to this product. Referring to it as "starboard" causes a great deal of confusion because of the association of starboard with a side of the boat, not a particular type of plastic material. Searching for "starboard" could be fruitless.

[Without directly saying so, mentioned that he used] 1/2-inch King Starboard [for a transom mount transducer].

I did not use KING StarBoard. I used another brand called SEA BOARD. The color was SEAFOAM

If you live on the West Coast, Seaboard is available from
the TAP Plastics retail stores. They will cut to size.
