reinc83 says:

I’m undecided between the lowrance elite-4x Chirp and the Garmin Echo 301dv. I don’t think I can go wrong with either one and I’m kinda leaning towards the Garmin. I was just looking for other opinions.

KayakDIY says:

+qbny944 I would use the Hobie Thru Hull wire kit.  Find it on amazon: http://amzn.to/1PE4Vh9

qbny944 says:

What size grommet would you use when installing wires through kayak hull.. the blue and red plus look pretty big
