Hobie has taken the guess work out of installing a fish finder by providing a simple yet complete installation kit. This kit is specifically pieced together to include everything you need for wiring up your fish finder to any Hobie kayak with the“Lowrance Ready” feature. Kit Includes: 12V 9AH waterproof gel cell battery and charger, wiring hardware, and battery holder which mounts to the sail post or in the lip of an 8” twist and seal hatch.
Received this quickly. Good customer service, happy with product. Thanks!
Received the kit but with a different (Cheaper) battery than the one advertised in the add and picture from Austin Kayak, misleading+ Losing customers
Hobie did change the battery that is included with this kit - we have updated the images accordingly.
Great product that is a snap to instal. It took me less than 20 minutes on my PA 12, including the Hook 4 fish finder. After a full charge and a full day fishing, my battery hasn't dropped below 50% any time I've been out. I like that the battery holder raises the battery slightly off the bottom of the kayak because I tend to get a little water in the hull when the waves are big. It's overall a great product in my opinion.
At first I thought it to be a bit pricy, but like all hobie products it is designed very well and is very convenient. If I get any other Hobie kayaks, I will be putting another one of these in.
