I am about ready to pull the trigger on a Furuno FCV620-PWD. It comes with a transom mount transducer for $799.00 from Marine.com.

5%OFF - FURUNO FCV620 PKG W/ TRANSOM MOUNT TRIDUCER 525STID-PWD Marine.com - marine electronics, Raymarine, Furuno, Harken, Lewmar, Schaefer, Garmin

My ride is a 17' Boston Whaler Montauk that I trailer, so a thru hull is probably not practical.

Does anyone have experience with this model?

Should I consider something else?

Also, what would it cost to have someone remove my current finder, and professionally install the new Furuno.

Thanks for your insights.

Jim

That is same unit I have in my boat. Excellent unit, but much better with the thru hull transducer.

I got the 620 for $677 and transducer for $112. (For my Whaler also) no shipping charges either. From BOE marine. 1st time customer, everything went smooth. I ordered on line. shipped UPS. They are having a sale on Furuno right now, check them out. Todd.

I inquired(from SURG, our resident electronics expert) on a price to install a thru hull on a whaler and was told it is tricky and pricey about $500 just for the install.

i just bought that same unit 2 months ago, and I love it. Try consummer marine electronics, I found them to have the best price and had great service. Did the installation myself it was fairly easy. I went with the through hull 525st-msd, I beleive thru hull is best but know its not as easy on a boston whaler. Good luck.....wasabi out

Thanks Hung for the referral

Those prices arent bad, but you will need to add a ducer to that...say a bit more than a 100.00 for a transom mount

Thru hull is a bit more
