Hi all, I am about to change to an in hull mount for my transducer. So I have been reading and watching you tube.

Seems there is a variety of ways to mount them from epoxy to silicon and even a container mounted then filled with water when you get there.

I like the idea of a tube product such, but epoxy would be better for getting the air bubbles out.

What have people done, I would love to have do a good job that I wont regret once its in.

Cheers in advance.

Def get a tube much easier to apply with a caulking gun . I did a similar install myself made a foam well for the transducer to sit in worked pretty well and not too messy either.
