    Default wireless depth finder?

    Last year I graduated from pontoon and deck boats to a 32' Carver Santego. It has no depth finder, and I want to add one. I cant even begin to figure out how I would run the wire from the transducer up to the helm/fly bridge.

    Can anybody tell me if I am over worrying about its difficulty, or if there is a wireless/wifi system available from transducer to readout unit that won't break the bank?

    I have a tablet I dont use for the fly bridge and I could also get info on phone from back deck if I want. Gonna give it a try.

    On almost every boat, there is a chase from the engine room to the helm. It will be where all of the rest of the wires are ran. Along that chase, there will be little cubby holes, speakers and access panels to help get the wire from point A to point B. When you find the chase, use a good fiberglass fish tape to pull the wire, and another pull string, from the engine room to the helm. It is time consuming, but easier than you think.
