Will this helix 5 g2 Chirp transducer mount on my wilderness 120 ATAK kayak flex pod removable console system ? How far down below the kayak does it need to be or just flush with bottom of kayak for the side scan to work properly?
Asked by: Ldero
The Humminbird Helix™ 5 G2 CHIRP GPS Chartplotter can be mounted on a gimbal or on your dashboard with an optional kit (sold separately). The entire body of the transducer must have clearance on both sides of the transducer for the side imaging readings for left and right side. You could not have the transducer flush because then there would be blockage for the beams.
