How in the heck do you route a new transducer through the hull.
I've pulled up the back deck and the side panel and cant see anything.
This is a Tracker V175 Combo.

How did you get the side panel off. I have all the screws out of the bottom but still seems attached at the top under the rail.

I don't have the same boat but I just installed a new Transducer. I got one of those fish tape wire pullers and fished it through all the places I needed to. I didn't take any panels off. Hope that helps.

I’m an idiot. I found a row of screws hidden in the carpet across the top. I wish I had done your way. I have a rule, every job needs a new tool. Especially if the wife wants it done. Wife wants the fence stained I need a new airless spray gun.

It's called a learning curve, don't beat yourself up over it.
I agree, gotta have the right tool for the job, plus it's easier to get when the wife wants it done.

LOL..Isn't that a fact. I have been collecting special tools for 48 years. I got quite the collection...LOL Just chalk it up as a learning experience. I probably would have done the same thing if I didn't have a fish tape already from doing some new wiring in my house.
