    Dammit Jason,

    Just get it done, then take me out so I can see how your set up turned out before dropping a mint on new 'ducers for the Garmins on the Seasport!

    Oh now I’m the guinea pig for the Custer sea sport guy?! I’m working on it Chris. I hear that delivery of beer and whiskey to the project site speeds up the process! :cheers:

    Well, I still haven’t pushed go but after all the input and awesome advice and a ton of reading I’m really set on this plan. In the cabin I’m thinking a pair of 1042xsv. Yes they are dual channel chirp units, but I want the pair to avoid split screening in most instances and for redundancy. Also the way that my cabin is with the aft sloping windows I don’t have a good space for one or a pair of larger screens.
    At the rear station I’m planning on a 1022 hooked into the garmin backbone .
    Annnnnnndddddddd for the transducer..... a cm275lhw(ss). With this I will be using a fairing block style pocket but it will be an aluminum welded version making me feel so much more comfortable with a large anything hanging off the bottom.
    So at this point I’m looking for a reason this seems like a bad idea? I know at least one of you will have a reason and I’m wanting to hear it as I’m days away from the order.

    That chest mount is a urethane housing so no need to worry about ss on that. A couple of things to consider-

    If you do the ss175L & ss175HW as mentioned before you can run both frequencies at the same time on the different screens, not sure you can run both at the same time with the chest mount you have picked out. Not that you will always want or need to run both frequencies at the same time but maybe sometimes?

    Paying for fabrication i would think offsets the cost of the 2nd transducer

    Just my 2 cents

    You might as well start looking at the 2-3 KW stuff, what the hell!
