Default T/H transducer with fairing on a trailered boat

I need to install a new transducer and would like to use a thru hull with tmp/spd (V744)but have concerns about trailering with the fairing block installed. The B20 tilted angle TD seems to be the best for my situation but Furuno does not offer a transom mount tmp/Spd unit that I can find and I’m not particularly keen to putting yet another hole in the hull for the tmp/spd. Should I have concerns about using the fairing block on the roller trailer?

Yes you should, anytime you put the boat on and off the trailer, you are gambling that you don't hit that transducer/fairing combo. Most version of the Airmar tilted transdcuer (the B60) have temp anyway, so how important is the paddlewheel speed to your fishing?

i had the exact same xducer w/ fairing on my 22'WA trailered boat (just sold).
I had the xducer drilled and mounted about a foot from the centreline and as the bunks are far enough away from the centerline the issue of hitting the fairing while loading onto the trailer wasn't an issue.

Had the B60 been available at the time, i would have chosen to go that way vs a thruhull with fairing.
You can add a transom mount paddle wheel if you really want, but temp can be had with a b60.

I guess your concern should be based on how steep the ramp is. On the ramp I use (with a T/H transducer with a high speed fairing block for a V744B transducer) to launch the boat -- the front of my boat fender is underwater, which means the rear of the boat is floating and not on the rear rails of the trailer, and its the same way when I recover the boat. So in my case its not a problem.

Not a problem. I have a 744B ducer in a faring block and have lots of clearance at the ramp.
