need advice - Thru-hull transducer problem
My problem, I have a Lockley-Newport sailboat (LN23). I just removed an old thru-hull. I planned to install an Airmar P319 transducer for my new GPS. I thought the current thru-hull was less than 2 inches in diameter and i would have to enlarge the hole. Now that its out I realize it is 2 1/8 inches (54mm?) instead of the 2inch (51mm?) hole that the Transducer instructions call for. I put the transducer in the hole and of course there is a little wiggle room on each side. Also the hole has a beveled edge, this model Transducer doesn't it just has a flat head (lip?) without any bevel.
Should i be alright to install it with a liberal amount of adhesive? Or will the extra 1/8 of an inch extra diameter cause problems later? If so what else can i do? having someone fill the hole to redrill would be my last option.
I plan to use 3m 4200 fast cure adhesive to install the new transducer
