I am getting painfully close to completing a 27' sailboat I started building about a year and a half ago and need some advice on a transducer idea I have.
I don't really want to install a traditional thru-hull type depth
transducer, and I don't want to use the transom mount style either. What I want to do is take the puck
(important) portion transom mount transducer and mount it to the outside of the hull
. In this case I would only have to drill a small hole through the boat to allow for the wire to pass through. I cannot use a shoot thru hull
type transducer because my boat is built of plywood
. I could countersink the puck
into the boat without losing any strength because of the build up of keel
Anyway, has anyone heard of someone doing this or something like it?
