Default M260 Advice

I just got the Northstar M121 with a M260 ducer from BOE. ( Thanks BOE, Great people!) I read through instructions for mounting it. It shows the general area for a twin outboard installation. From what i read you have to have a solid suface it can shoot through and any kind of air pocket is bad. I called proline an asked about the construction process of the hull and stringer system. They said that the stringer and hull should be bonded together but some times air pockets are possible.

Does anyone have any experience with this type of install that could put me on the right track so this gets done right the 1st time? Thanks

You might want to try hooking it up temporarily to your machine and putting the ducer on top of a zip lock bag filled with water and all air purged from the bag. You can then move the transducer around until you find and optimal placement.

thanks albie, an installer got back to me on another site and he said the same thing. He said the directions for the airmar are right on. You hang it over the side and then compare the readings you get in the bag.
