P66 Transducer Install ...... Alternative to drilling holes.
I was looking for alternative to drilling holes below the waterline on my BW 210 Ventura. I looked at fabricating a piece of starboard as a mounting surface but bonding it to fiberglass was difficult at best so I decided to give SternMate TMS a try. I installed a SternMate system in October of last year and have logged over 150 hours of inshore/offshore use since then. The install has with stood running in the open ocean from 35 - 45 mph in seas 3 - 5'. I've grabbed some air on ocassion with no impact on the install.
The SternMate transducer mounting sytem has been solid as a rock the bonding material that comes as part as the package works as advertised. When mounted the tranducer is easy to adjust up/down/left/right.
Here's the link to SternMates website that explains the product in depth. http://www.sternmate.com/SternMateSystem.html
Here's some pictures of my install ...... it took me about an hour to complete.
I have no affiliation with SternMate other than using their product. I think this is a good alternative for installing a transducer.
