Depth Transducer C30

Postby Boatagain on Mon Jun 05, 2017 8:03 am

Can someone please tell me where the depth transducer on a 2016 Cutwater 30 is located? Trying so save my old bones some pain while crawling all over the boat. Thanks very much in advance.

Good Morning,
The transducer is located on the stbd fwd side of the engine. It is located under a seaboard cover. You have to be a very agile person to get into it
If you have any question please feel free to contact me

Thanks for your prompt reply Ronnie. Sadly, whatever agility I once had is long gone. My depth readings have become sporadic with flashing numbers appearing all too often. Since this began after launch this spring and all was well last season, I suspect a loss of fluid from the cup and/or, perhaps, the transducer is loose from the cup. I have checked the settings and they are what you've recommended in previous posts. Aside from an inconvenient trip to the dealer, any suggestions?

I contacted the service manager at my dealer. When I described the symptoms, he agreed with my guess that something's amiss with the transducer, either a loose unit or low fluid. He's promised to take care of it this week at my slip - about an hour's drive for him each way, the usual wonderful customer service I've come to love. I swear, however, that I could hear him softly sobbing when I asked how in the world he's going to reach the damn thing. :cry:
