I would like to install a depth/speed/temp transducer
(Airmar DST800 or similar) in my Wharram catamaran
. The problem is that the plywood hull
has a very steep deadrise--about 55 degrees. The installation
instructions specify a maximum deadrise of 22 degrees. Even Airmar's high performance fairing is recommended for only up to 26 degrees.
So I'm not sure how best to mount the triducer on my boat
. Maybe fabricate my own fairing blocks and use the long-stem version of the triducer? I've even thought of using the transom-mounted version on a pole suspended from a crossbeam.
I'd be grateful for any advice or ideas. Thanks.
