The Hobie Thru Hull Wiring Kit allows you to thread wires through the hull of your boat to install fishfinders, GPS and more. The kit includes two through hull fittings with a variety of options for different wire sizes, backing nuts, o-rings, and installation instructions. Also includes two solid grommets to block off the opening if you want to remove your electronic device.
Great for running transducer and power wire thru hull and keep it watertight.
according to all reviews, I thought this is what I needed to install a Lowrance fish finder. At the start, I was hoping to go in one fitting, & out another. This wasn't the case... I could not get the connector for the transducer thru the backing nut, without messing up the threads in the nut. I ended up doubling the cable over, to the point of almost kinking it & then pushed the cable thru the hull, then thru the nut. This seemed to work OK. I also could not get any of the grommets to fit the transducer cable,being too large in diameter X 2 cables in 1 hole. . ended using just the plug. put the power cable thru the second plug with grommets the no problems.
The kit looks and works great. Installation "may" require a compact drill that can provide the angle needed to drill a neat hole;...if space is limited. I cut the shaft of a spade bit and used a compact drill. The kit comes with different size wire diameter plugs, and was easy to install. You will need to be able to access the back of the plug in order to screw on the retaining ring.
