Default Fairing block

I called Airmar when I was trying to make the same decision. They said the regular faring block was good up to 25 knots.... I bought the high speed faring.

Default Fairing block

I bought the high-speed fairing block. The thing was about 12-14" long and maybe 3" wide at it's widest point. It's comes to a point on either end and is widest in the middle where the transducer is situated. It's pretty big.

I ended up not having to use a fairing block. I have twins and the marina said that it would work fine to place it on the keel where no fairing block is needed.

Default Fairing block

I just cut a airmar high speed fairing just yesterday for a B256 ducer. It was 18" long and about 6" wide. Lucky I had a large bandsaw with tilt table available, or it would have been a hack job.. The triducer fairing is smaller, like the previous post says.

Since you came this far use the fairing block from Airmar, the transducer recesses right into it, perfect fit. Like the previous post said, you will need a good saw to cut the dead rise angle. But once done you have the best installation you could do.
