SLH have been installing fish finders onto kayaks ever since installing fish finders onto kayaks became a thing. We're especially handy at fitting them into Hobie kayaks and thanks to Hobie's Lowrance-Ready and Guardian Transducer Scupper systems, we get great results every time. We take various approaches to installations and some people are surprised to learn it's not really a simple plug and play affair and that there is a few pieces to the puzzle.

The kayak model and sounder type we are working with can dictate how we go about it, as well as the transducer type and battery mounting options available.
