Looking for a Garmin 741XS compatible (will eventually upgrade to 1040XS) transducer. I'm looking for 1000watts that will support chirp. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/shop...rod123252.html
I am thinking of making an aluminum bracket to house a thru-hull type transducer to the exterior transom of the boat. Has anyone tried this with the thru-hull model transducers? It would be much smaller than an Airmar TM265 or similar type transom mount transducer and I think it would be much tougher also. I'll be beach landing on occasion and sometimes the boat will go dry - I'd hate to beat up a $1K transducer on the rocks.
Somebody had a recommendation to build a vertical sliding type bracket - but the less moving parts the better so I would weld the bracket to the transom.
