We have a R99 on a 32' Boston Whaler Outrage. Haven't had a chance to get any PIC's yet. No harder to install than any other transducer with a High Speed Fairing. AIRMAR recommends the boat be at least 30' long. We're using the DSM300 and E 120, just haven't had time to play with it yet. It's my brother's boat. Spent the last two weeks getting my boat ready to launch. We will try to get both out for a photo shoot on Sunday. Might get a few PIC's of the sounder too. ;)

I am leaning towards the r99 over the b260. Have to make up my mind soon, probably by next friday. The r99 sounds like an awesome ducer.
