The FishTrax™ 1X’s advanced sonar capabilities allow it to “Shoot-Thru” the bottom of a boat, kayak or canoe. The hull must be made out of solid fiberglass, or a maximum of 1/8” aluminum, and be in direct contact with the water, with no air pockets. The FishTrax™ 1X will not work through wood, plastic, or any composite material.
To “Shoot-Thru” the Hull of a Boat, Do One of the Following:
A. Place the sonar sensor in .5 inches of water against the hull bottom.
B. Coat the face of the sonar sensor with petroleum jelly and press it against the hull bottom with a twisting motion.
C. Place the sonar sensor in a plastic bag that is full of water and place against the hull bottom.
