White line fever when at the local Hobie retailer and bought myself a Lowrance Hook2 fish finder.
My question is what do you do to protect the connector when the fish finder is not in use, and not on the boat.
Either for storage outside (under a tarp) or when you don't want to take the fish finder out on the boat.... Some purchases need some time before the big reveal.

I thought that Lowrance might provide a blank or something to protect the end of the connector, but nothing was in the box..

I simply visited my hardware warehouse store and went looking for rubber chair leg "boots". I soon found ones which were a snug fit on the sockets of the fishfinder, yet only cost pennies. Any little unused sockets were taped over permanently.

Still going strong after eight years....
