I think we should have more pictures of the boat in living room haha.
I have enough hassle trying to modify my launch wheels in the living room

Looks a very nice setup. Well done :)

:thud Well thats was fun i have no idea how this will appear but here goes!! New Mac @ work :geek:

Just got of the phone with Garmin and they will replace the bracket for the metal one as indicated on their websites if you were to buy transducer seperate :drive
I wanted to see what model the transducer was and they all appear to come with a metal transom mounting plate.
If you dont ask you dont get! :yay

Anyway, i have just used 25 alloy box section and some flat bar bent over transom and clamped with a f clamp, then covered with bicycle inner tube for protection.
It is very solid and the there is enough adjustment on the plate to get the perfect height, i hope!!

:o that’s a bit harsh ol’chap.. :wedgie
It was a polite request with an explanation why :mrgreen:

It would be interesting to see who is using which Tapatalk version as this problem has occurred before.
Iirc Chris Moody appears to be able to post images via Tapatalk and his display ok.. or am I wrong Chris ?

Taken I good spirit buddy, hence the :wedgie :clappy

Surprisingly the forum is mainly viewed on mobile platforms, followed by tablets then desktops. We don’t have Tapatalk user data though, just mobile data re:- iOS, window, android .

There is a mobile platform installed on the forum too, a very stripped back version of our software.
Personally I always use the main forum for viewing on all devices I use.
Sorry, off topic.. I’ll get the Tapatalk thread re started and we’lol try find out what’s going on.

Tonight just a quick addition :drive
I have seen a few posts regarding having a backrest and I thought that would be me wanting to just sit back and looking at my rod waiting for that moment to come :o
This was my little ergo lite chair I used on my biking travels, folds(roll) up small weighs nothing and give perfect back support wherever you want to sit.
Happy! :star
