With the transducer at the end of a 12-Ft wire, this unit can be used from larger boats, mounted inside or outside of the hull, on a pole or boathook. This is useful if you are not close enough to the water to use the SM-5. The transducer wire and fitting are waterproof, however, the main unit is not for underwater use and should not be submerged. An optional Accessory Kit contains (A) a strong suction cup bracket for external hull mounting and (B) a Velcro/2-block attachment for pole or boathook mounting (see large view).
By changing the end caps, you can have two Depthmates in one! To convert SM-5A to SM-5, purchase the EC-5 cap (see Accessories). If you need a transducer wire longer than 12 Ft, it can be custom ordered and will take approx. 3-4 weeks. Call us to order.
