  • How to install a fish finder/GSP on a kayak

    Having purchased my Hobie Tandem Adventure Island with fishing in mind, a GPS/Fish Finder became a ‘must have’. I recently purchased the Humminbird 385ci combination GPS/Fish Finder based on its good reviews and size, however I couldn’t find many instructional articles on the internet with respect to installation. During the installation process I produced the following ‘how to’ YouTube – I hope you find it useful.
