Did this occur when I launched or came in from La Jolla?
I was having issues with my Hook 5 not showing the bottom definition past 130 feet or so.

Somebody had a brilliant idea in response to this...

It doesn't really affect my transducer (Hook4) on the way out to sea and when I come home I always hose off the kayak including the transducer pocket. I think it would only be a problem if you allowed sand/debris to build up in there.

Thank you!

I'm guess it can happen if you slide your kayak backwards on the sand. Even if only slightly while unpacking or manoeuvring onto trolley. I find the seat drain venturi drain gets blocked as well.

I find that drain plug utterly useless :lol:
I'm probably going to modify it to pass a wire for an underwater LED instead.
