Be sure to put the model of SI unit that you used, and your boat type in the description.

All boat bling installed and operational, I gotta muck around a bit with the X100c although, the 797 interferes with it.

I've been on the side lines for awhile checking out this site and all I have to say is thanks to all. Your open advise has helped me out. I installed my 797 c2i and took it out for a try. Everything worked as advertised. This SI stuff is great. Here are a few pics of the mounting of the head and transducer. Let me know what you think.

Again thanks to all. :lol: :lol:

My mounting on my wood boat (797c2)

Post by peter_l » Wed May 07, 2008 6:31 pm

First i mounted the transducer on the rudder, becase i didn't want to lift the boat out of the water before the winter. Worked good, but not at higher trottle.

Now when i have hade the boat on land for the winter, i moved the tranducer to get free sight. No propeller in the way, works great !

My boat, a real boot is made of wood :D

Portable 787c2i

Post by camalama » Mon Mar 02, 2009 4:29 pm

For many years I did not have a fishing boat, and still don't as mine is being built now. My biggest complaint was when I would get on a friends boat, or rent a boat, the electronics were typically nothing more than a glorified depth finder. In doing my research, I found that the typical Humminbird portable units weren't really that great for what I wanted. I ended up purchasing a 787c2i and portable qudrabeam transducer.

To make the whole thing portable, besides the portable transducer, I mounted the unit inside a pistol case on a piece of plywood. The foam from the gun case was utilized to cushion the unit during transport. To lower the footprint of the case while in use I made the hinges of the gun case removable.

As for power the plan was two fold. First, I did some math concerning the use of a 12Ah battery. Ah stands for Amp Hour. To figure out the amp hour you take the Ah and divide by 20 hours. Example: a 12Ah battery is 12/20 = 0.6 amps. This means that a 12Ah battery can maintain 0.6 amps for 20 hours. The 787c2i draws 560mA or 0.56 amps. So a 12Ah battery would run this unit for about 20 hours. This will also be supplemented with a 12 volt hook-up that has a cigarette lighter adapter and alligator clamps allowing hook-up to any 12V source. The batteries are small 4"H x 6"L X 3.7"W. I believe Humminbird actually sells these batteris now, they didn't when I set this unit up. This setup works like a champ. I've taken it to Canada but typically use it on friends boats. My new ride is coming equipped with a 997. Once the boat is delivered, I will set this unit up on the bow of the boat with a quick disconnect. I'll get photos of that install as well. Here is the portable unit as it stands.
