SB264 Switchbox and Transducer $495; 603.673.9570, www.airmar.com

Wide- and narrow-beam selection is now at your fingertips! The SB264 switchbox allows you to wire your existing 1kW transducer with a new SS264-watt wide-beam 200kHz. The SB264 works with most popular 1kW transducers found on center console and large sportfishing vessels. The wide beam provides the coverage and resolution needed to pinpoint fish or bait lurking close to the boat; the narrow beam is highly efficient when bottom fishing in waters up to 400′, providing optimal bottom detail and separation of tightly spaced targets.
