 yep got that covered. gotta be careful beaching it anyways as sand can wash up the jet and blow the wear ring even if you start it in depper water. mines more for fishing so beaching isnt really an issue but thanx for the heads up....

Try get the back of the sounder protected, maybe house it in a cheap plastic container like a lunchbox or something. The more you can keep your electronics dry the better

 the new hds 7 gen 3 is ip rated. can actually be submerged but i have no desire to do that. the rear plugs are sealed and the plug caps are vasalened to further prevent water ingress but i may look into protecting it a bit further.

 Great to see another Ski is getting fitted out for Fishing.

Make sure your Rod Holders are not at the back of the Fishing Rack. It's a long way to lean back to secure your rods into the holders.
