Getting ready to install a depth finder in my Sanger V215 I believe that the sounder Puck is glued to the hull near the v-drive under the back seat. Photos of the factory install location would be greatly appreciated. Also has anyone had any problems with the factory Hummin Bird or is the Uniden one better.

I'd love to know too. I've got to install one this winter.

I have installed both brands in my V210 and have never had great results.

I have a hummingbird transducer and it works fine. I epoxied it to the floor around mid hull. Poor results are usually from the epoxy or glue used to install. I find JB Weld to be a great epoxy for this, no bubbles and no chance of breaking down. No need to install in the exact same spot as the factory. I would look under the boat and find a location that appears to get the least amount of turbulence and install there.

I concur with Steve, less turbulence equals better results. Don't get too close to or stay in front of hull steps, water intakes, rudder, prop, tracking fins, etc and you'll get good readings. You want to make sure it's in a location always in contact with water. Bubbles in the epoxy will screw up the readings. Mix it slow and press and twist slowly to seat and you'll be good. On my DD i put it just behind and to the left of the trans and have had no issues at all.

My Humminbird works great in my V210 with the puck glued in the same spot as the raw water pick-up, but on the other side...

Sparky jay that is where my perfect pass wheel is so do I go just in front of the paddle wheel or just in front of the water pickup. That is why I was hoping that someone had a factory installed one with a photo. Thanks for the input.

This should help 08 V215,factory install, we try to mount as low as possible to give the most accurate bottom distance reading,looks like anywhere along that area would be fine,see above comments on epoxy procedureUpload

In the middle would be fine as in the above pic... under the v-drive on the flat area in the hull
