Default Transducer choices for aluminum hulls (i.e.,Pacific)

In a perfect world I would like to install a 1kw transducer on my new 26' Pacific. It seems that I may be limited to transom mounted transducers which are typically mid-performance 600w units. Has anyone had experience with Airmar's 1kw transom mount or has anyone mounted a through-hull unit in an aluminum hull similar to the Pacific?

Thanks,

Mark

I always thought something like what mirage does would be very ideal for an aluminum boat (and told Jay so).

Thanks for teh responses, Redemperor,I'm looking forward to heairn about your sea trial. I wasn't sure if the through hull ducer would work for hulls thicker than 0.15 inches - this would be great news. Cooper - I'm forwarding your pictures on to the Pacific factory in Washington to see what they think. Jim at BOE had suggested something similar.
