Keeping sounder wires tidy

Recommended Posts

Trying to keep all my wires nice and tidy, looking for some kind of clip. Any ideas folks ? Someone has mentioned p clamps. Which will require drilling. Something sticky would be ideal. But i guess after a few wet wash's the sticky will fall off.  What do you do ??

I ran mine in flexible conduit then used zip ties. You can get the conduit with a split in it so you push the cables in rather than thread them through

+1 for this. A buddy of mine has this in his tinny running along the inside of the gunnal. Keeps the wires well out of the way tidily.

just another tip keep your sounder transducer cable away from other wiring if possible ie run it it down the other side of the boat away from battery/power wires it will reduce electrical interferance

I sometimes fish amongst the snags on the Murray and in the mangrove creeks in the salt so I have my transducer cable protected by a short section of aluminium channel that I got from Bunnings. It is secured with 2 stainless steel screws (3mm by memory) with nyloc nuts. You can see the two screws above the water stain line. The self adhesive clip is as others have stated i.e. various types at Jaycar and if you clean the ali prior to sticking them on then they will not come off.  If you need stainless steel screws, washers or nyloc nuts that Bunnings don't stock or you don't require a full packet of them then, go to United Fasteners i.e. if you only need 3 or so they normally will not even charge you.
