Lowrance Debuts Kayak Scupper-Hole, Transducer-Mounting System
Electronics Leader Introduces Easy-to-Install Solution for Lowrance HDS®, Elite™, Mark™ and X-Series Transducers
Tulsa, Okla. – Lowrance, a world-leading brand in marine electronics since 1957 and GPS navigational systems since 1992 — announced today a new transducer-mounting solution designed for kayak anglers to use with Lowrance’s full range of top-selling fishfinders and fishfinder/chartplotters. The Transducer Kayak Scupper Mount is compatible with Skimmer® transducers for all Lowrance HDS®, Elite™, Mark™ and X-Series Skimmer® transducers -- including DownScan Imaging™ (DSI) models. Designed for most sit-on-top fishing kayaks on the market, the mount is easy to install and remove, in any scupper hole, requiring few tools and no messy adhesives common to existing kayak transducer mounts.
“The Lowrance Transducer Kayak Scupper Mount provides the simplest and most convenient transducer mounting system for Lowrance’s top-selling fishfinders,” said Louis Chemi, chief operating officer, Navico Americas. “Lowrance offers the highest quality fishfinding imagery available. Our new scupper mount makes it easier for kayak anglers to take advantage of our best-in-class technology, and ensures they get the best performance returns from their transducer.”
By positioning the transducer directly in the water, the Lowrance Transducer Kayak Scupper Mount ensures maximum sonar-signal sensitivity for the clearest underwater views of structure and fish. The mount operates with the Lowrance dual-frequency 83/200 kHz Skimmer and 455/800 kHz DSI transducer. Featuring a one-year limited warranty, the kayak mount fits scupper holes with a maximum circumference of 1.50” (3.8 cm) and minimum 0.95” (2.4 cm), and maximum and minimum depth of 9.25” (23.5 cm) and 1.58” (4.0 cm), respectively.
Available in October 2011 from authorized dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada, the new Lowrance Transducer Kayak Scupper Mount has a suggested retail price of US $39.99.
