The forward transmiter is mounted in the forward cabin on the stbd side, stdb of the stringer beam. When looking at the flooring in the forward cabin there are two small access hatches one for the echosounder and another to stbd of that, my transducer is nicely placed under this second one. It was the place I found to be most flat in the area.

So what happens if you get a leak? ie engine intake, fresh water tank, heads hose, leak through from the anchor locker in rough water ( members have all indicated those items a few times over the past few years)  Lots of options.
Then a quite small amount of water slopping about when the boat heals can - I assume- get the item wet.
Is that not a possibility with relatively shallow bilges

Hi Samuel,
Thanks your comment, but honestly I dont understand where your comming from. The transducers are rate as IP68 meaning they will withstand 1.5m of submersion in water for 30 mins. If I had 1.5m of water (ussuming still water, never mind where it came from) in the boat above the transducers I think the last thing on my mind would be "Ohh s..t maybe my antifouling system has stopped working". I will have lost more viltal syetems like VHF, steering, nav systems, nav lights, my whole switch board would be underwater as with my engine. In a realistic situation the water would be sloppyng around as she heeled over. Not only that but I doubt that the air draft on the 385 is, or is, much more than 1.5mt....................However, after taking to the liferaft and seeing her turn over I will take the oportunity to inspect the the hull and saildrive for the efficency of the antifouling system, and report back.

Apologies , I misunderstood & in a brain fade moment I was thinking of another thread.( actually it was not even this forumCryCry)  I did not think of antifouling transducers.
