    transducer

    I have an 18 ft. searay and I've installed a Lowrance Elite 4 but am not getting proper depth readings, the transducer is in the hull, I'm wondering if any other owners have the same situation and had success. What am I doing wrong.

    Is it a "shoot thru hull" or is it actually installed completely through the hull?

    They usually have some type of calibration to them. Not sure about your model, but my Garmin has a setting to change depth reading at 4 feet deep. I measured actual depth to bottom and adjusted, seems OK now. Also has speed calibration to my phone GPS.
