I would like your opinion of the product at www.transducersaverplus.com, a transom transducer holder that allows you to raise and lower the transducer. It also allows you to use other equipment such as underwater cameras and lights to mount to it. This helps in protecting the equipment by reducing barnacles and mold build up, thus extending the life of the equipment.
This is an invention from a good friend of mine, it has been patented and I am looking to distribute and sell direct as well. Thanks for your help

$75 is a ridiculous price for what it is. Try $30.

What is the number assigned to this invention by the U.S. Patent Office? I would like to read the patent.

With many transom mount transducers costing less than $100 themselves, I would agree with Phil; $30 or so is all I'd pay. If it was advertised on one of those "sham-wow" or "slap chop" infomercials, I'd expect the 2nd free if I called "within the next 30 minutes". Billy Mays would have had them for $19.99, here's how to order...

This product competes against a $25 spray can of transducer anti-fouling paint. I get about 6 seasons out of a spray can covering two transducers.

This has been around for years...use to advertise in Saltwater Sportsman mag. My recollection was that folks said it worked great. Other folks said they can make the same thing from King Starboard. There was a feature on this that allowed you to bring up the transducer up and clean the surface should it get fouled which for Salt folks is a boon.

I've had transducers reside in salt water for many years, I don't see why its difficult to clean the transducer. Not much of anything grows on it if you use the boat and use anti-fouling paint.
I suppose that if you are one of those folks that leave your boat at the slip for for months on end without use and don't use transducer anti-fouling paint such that you often find that you have a small marine habitat growing from the transducer, then this device might be useful.
