Furuno Transducer

Hi all,


I'm putting a new sounder in the boat, It has a Lowrance elite 5 which will now be the plotter. I've decided to go with the Furuno fcv628.

It's a small tub (4.3m) and I usually fish 10-50 meters, rarely any deeper, just after some advice on transducer options?

I've looked at the Airmar p66 T/M Biducer, any other suggestions?

Also who should I see in Perth for a good deal the unit and transducer? I could go online but would rather keep the money in local buisness.


Cheers for any input!

Nothing wrong with the P66. Will work well with the 628 and they are cheap.

 The P66 is good, and being cheap its not a disaster if it gets knocked around a bit.

 P66 is just fine mate, fishing out in 60m-70m the other night and saw the fish no dramas.

You can see bottom, but can you see fish? That's the real question.  Furuno 628 and a p66 is an exellent fishfinder I had the 620 and a p66 for many years but to see more than the bottom @ 200m you need to step it up to 1kw.
