Default installed my fish finder in my yak yesterday

Well I got my fish finder today. Since I am basically starting from scratch I have alot of things to order. Therefore I did not get the little nice things like scotty mounts. That being said, I am pretty happy with how the install went.
I made my own battery box from a ammo box I found on amazon.com for 10 bucks. I found some "wire seals" for $1.50 (instead of the $9 to $20 you pay for "WIRE SEAL" online at kayaking places) While I was on my job site today I found a long length of heat shrink- I hea shrunk my whole cable, and even tripple shrinked it where the cable comes out of the hull to attach to the fish finder.
I found some inexpensive connectors at home depot and made a quick disconnect near the battery. I used 4 bricks of duct seal to install both the battery box in the hull and the transducer in the hull. I even turned the boat sideways and you can see the battery is still hanging on.
Well here are some pics. they may not be in order.

sorry. I tried loading pictures, even embedding them from another site but deleted when I saw they were tagged with the other forum, and I didn't think that was right. so I just deleted all that.
Now I can't figure out how to delete this post.

Just use the "Manage Attachments" button under all the smilies when you're posting, and attach the photos directly to your post
