Spray hood and depth sounder
The photo shows the sounder, not fitted. The wooden patch shows where I plan it to go. Easy to see, won't get in the way of lounging back against the bulkhead and easy access to the wires behind. Wiring it up fills me with dread. Installing the transducer on the other hand should be relatively straightforward.
It probably isn't the purist's location for the fitting as it is close to the engine and not at the absolutely lowest part of the hull. But the ability to install it without drilling through the cabin floor is worth it, I hope. The cable will pass through the fuel hose opening into the cockpit locker and I will have to drill one hole between that locker and the cabin to get it inside. Then all I have to do is build the switch board...
