Default Transducers??????

Very confused too many transducers to choose from. Had transim mount before....minor issues like surface clutter and not functioning well while on plane. Which is the overwhelming favorite?

Not sure what depth sounder you have, but I would strongly suggest the Airmar 260 series. It is expensive but very good.

I can tell you I have the same hull as you and went with the transom mount (P-66 I think?)for my 600l...... Having a lot of problems. I have it mounted on the starboard side away from any through-hulls. Can't seem to get a signal at anything much above idle. I don't think the stepped hull is very conducive to transom mounts. Too much turbulence maybe? Next problem is finding a place to drill a hole for a through-hull.... Don't want my deck lookin like swiss cheese.
