Re: Fiberglass boat/Transducer Question

I'm not certain but I think those transducers are meant to be mounted externally. You may lose your down imaging feature trying to shoot thru hull with that one. If you're not concerned about the imaging, You can get the in hull puck transducer with the remote temp sensor built in to it.
