Quick question, can you do the old Sellys All Clear or a wet mount with a CHIRP transducer without a huge loss in performance (yes I know there will be some with any internal install)? It's just that I'm somewhat limited with the fibreglass Stealth and no transducer scupper...

I'm sure Winch could fit it through-hull nicely for ya!

BTW, is the CHIRP in the head-unit, the transducer or both?
