Thanks in advance.
Is it a rib
? Only reason to know if you could glue on a transducer
to the hull
(inside a locker) vs. an external mounted one. IMO the internally glued on transducer
We have a internal mounted transducer on the hull
in our hard nesting dinghy and never have to worry about it falling off/breaking like an external. Another thing to check if it is a rib
that the hull is solid f/g to make the glued on transducer work
Ours is just an old Hummingbird that is powered by a solar battery
, but works well. Very easy to see the readings to check around the boat
while rowing or when we hook up the OB at WOT.
