I will be doing the install this week or next. I will take pics along the way. Seems very straight foward and to the point. Nothing specialized except a 2 3/8 hole saw which is one of the most common sizes.

Drill the hole, apply 5200, and screw tight! Absolutely awesome and super easy!

They still requiring a 2 3/8" hole? I know you can find a hole saw adapter to widen a 2" hole, but though the new tiltled elements fit in the 2" hole.

I put mine as close to the keel and transom as I could. It works fantastic, reads depth at speeds over 50 MPH. The only thing you have to be sure of is to make sure it faces the right way. There are some arrows that must be pointed toward the keel.

Make sure that you have enough room to turn your wrench inside the hull where you are locating the transducer. Other than that the install is really easy.

Good luck

I will try to post a picture the way I have done, which works and is easily removable, no water infiltrations (holes above WL), but not the nicest.
