Yep, 1.2m is reasonable. Long period swell at the moment, so even at that size, it will still have some push.

How regular were the sets? Getting further apart? Good sign if they are.

Flagged it as the forecast for the top of the Coro fell away pretty quick so not worth the drive really
Going to have a look at Sunday as looking better than tomorrow I think

Hey guys, boat sold and ordered my reload today, be ready next week sometime. Would be keen to tag along one day if thats cool. Going to wait to see how I get on before fitting a sounder, sure to be a few wipe outs at the start!! Starting to shop around, thinking 5 inch lowrance maybe? ran a 7 on the boat but maybe too wide?

Well that was an easy decision at 1.7m šŸ˜€

14foot nice on the yak. Feel free to tag along anytime. I dont think it matters with the fishfinder what size. If you have the coin go bigger but it is a harsh environment on a kayak. I recommend been able to easily unclip and unplug the unit for stowage through surf and use lanocote grease on the plug and socket contacts and battery lugs for longetivity. Even then i sometimes have to crimp on new battery plugs as the old give up to salt water.

Yep, got up at 5am, 1.9m, had another look at 6 and 1.7m. Hopefully it will ease off today. Still showing 1.9m now Disapprove

14FC,  I run a 5inch garmin striker which seems a good size on the yak. I think a few guys run 7's but don't know if you'll need it. Be worth getting a li-ion battery if you go to a 7.

Cheers for the replies guys, will check out the Garmin units too and make sure it can come off easy. Was thinking a railblazer slider with unit in the middle and a holder either side. Looking forward to getting out there!!

Looking at heading out tomorrow from Harrisons around 6.30am if anyone's gonna be around.

Scoped it out today, wasn't too big. Looked easy enough to time it and get out without getting too wet. Hopefully it drops for the morning
