    I wonder if there is a way to test it with a liquid inside of the little dam that is built, like mineral oil or something. Rather than epoxy it and then cleaning that off?

    Me too! I was at the Sullivan sportsman show and just caught the tail end of Garmin presentation. What I saw was very informative but next year I am hitting the entire thing. Highly recommend that.
    I am not smart enough to use the chirp function otherwise, if is Infact that great. Mostly I use sounder for depth.

    The detail is much better, almost cheating.

    I had a 26 Osprey I installed an in-hull transducer in a pvc pipe with mineral oil bath. Worked good and a good way to check if you don't know if your hull is cored.

    I did not notice much difference between the stock (dewey') xducer and the AimarTM265LH that I put on. I have messed with different settings. It is better - but I had hoped I could turn it on and the fish would float to the surface :-)

    I have noticed that when I see what I think is a fish, I can usually catch them. Especially rock fish.

    I used plumbers putty and put a baggie of sand over it to keep the transducer down to try different placement to get away from cavatation bubbles under the boat. Once I found the best spot I epoxied it down.
