Default Transducer installation

After much searching I have finally found a location for the B175 0n my Wellcraft 290. The bilge access is terrible but by eliminating 1 of the 4 thru hulls in that area I can now install the transducer forward of any thru hulls and approximately 3" to the side of the keel ridge. would the ridge of the keel cause any problem? I don't want to move it any further out if I don't have to because the inner hull is not totally flat further out, it has a small depression in that area that would, in my opinion, require buildup or modification of the supplied spacer.
Any help would be appreciated
Greg

You'll be fine 3" away from centerline.
