Installation-Thru-Hull Mount
Drill a hole in the bottom
of the boat large enough to accomodate
the stem of the transducer.
Use fairing
blocks to "sandwich"
the
transducer
and to waterproof
the area of installation.
By shaping the
fairing
block located beneath the hull, you can reduce the amount of
drag on your boa't. This is the best mounting
for obtaining
maximum
performance
from your system, however, there are also disadvantages
to this type of mount, such as:
.
Damage can be caused to the transducer and/or hull when load-
ing or unloading your boat from a trailer.
.
Damageor sinking can occur if the transducer strikes a submerg-
ed object while boating.
. Barnacles and other marine life will attach to and grow on the
transducer impairing performance.
.
This type of mount will cause noticeable drag on high perform-
ance hulls.
