OMNI SONAR

San Diego Boat Electric’s founder, Greg Moore, entered naval sonar school in 1977. The navy invested $300,000 in training him in Sonar repair and operation, so you and Furuno wouldn't have to.

Greg's first sonar system was a 250,000-watt unit. It had its own dedicated diesel motor generator and 53 cabinets of circuit boards, each the size of a refrigerator. The transducer inside the rubber bulbous bow was 22 feet in diameter and 10 feet high. It could be filled with air, making it easy to purge the water out for maintenance.

Since the 1980s, as a civilian and as a very young tech for the late Fred Ducket's commercial boat (called Temptation), Greg's helped hundreds of full sector scan users maintain, replace, or improve their sonar sector or Omni directional units.

Greg’s sonar work is featured in the following vessels:

  • Bernie FV boat Cimmaron
  • Rick Bergs MV Jalapenos
  • NOAA RV Okeanas

Now, Greg wants to help you get a 360-degree view so you can find, chase, and capture more fish.
