    Default Through hull transducer on transom

    I have been wanting to upgrade a transducer for some time and like many was not sure I wanted to cut a hole in the boat since I have had bad luck with my pick of transducers. I have seen mention of mounting on the transom so I finally had a bracket welded on and was able to mount the transducer (Airmar SS175C HW 12 degree tilt) just in time for the derby this weekend. It worked great.

    I have a friend with a 30' koffler with that same type of transducer install. He also says it works great. That is how I am going to do mine also I think. I am not keen on welding on my hull. I might install some hdpe and then bolt to it....but not sure yet.

    Size. Protection when beaching. More power for less money in some cases. The hull mount transducers are spendy and the big ones are kind of new compared to some of the high power thru-hull units.

    More selection with the thru hull type transducers also.
