Airmar CM-599 Pocket Mount CHIRP Transducer
Maximum performance, no drag, and increased
fuel efficiency. Ideal for sportfishing vessels, high-speed powerboats, or
smaller boats where installation of a high-performance transducer is not
possible due to trailer, lift, or hull limitations.
Pocket and Keel-Mounted transducers are
installed flush to the hull. A flush installation positions the
transducers face parallel to the waterline resulting in a beam that is
vertically oriented for maximum echo return and incredible performance at
speed. Optimum performance is achieved because the face of the transducer
is in direct contact with the water, providing the best sensitivity. There
is no drag because the transducer is installed either flush into a flat
spot located along the keel or into a custom pocket. Boat builders can
create a detail in their mold so that a pocket is formed along the keel.
The transducer is then inserted into the pocket from the outside of the
hull allowing future upgrades without altering the finished hull.
Aftermarket installation requires routing a hole in the hull and glassing
the transducer flush to the running surface. Running performance is
maintained and prop and intake cavitations are eliminated.
