"bronze threw hull highspeed fairing block"

Purchased the garmin 2010c with the bronze threw hull
triducer 50-200kz???? in the directions it said you must
use the airmar highspeed fairing block!!!
to go over the threw hull! so I order this $60 part
bring it to the installer and he says
hey man this thing is way to big!!
it will make your boat
pull to the left or right while under way dependind on what side you
install it and he said there is a issue with knocking it off when
trailering can this be soooooooooo?????
what to do? what to do?
Im on hold for the install till I get some advice from you all!
Thanks Bogii.

I just installed similar setup/tri/airmar fairing.

Yes the fairing is sizable, but it is that way to reduce drag and improve running images. As far as enough drag to induce yaw on the boat I would seriously doubt that.

If trailering is a real issue they have a high end shoot thru the hull setup to checkout. You have a good amount of $$ invested, now's not the time to weave on the proper installation.

Is it possible the installer in not comforable installing it? If that is the case he would most likely lead you to transom mount, which I wouldn't recommend.

When I put in a thru-hull for my Garmin 240 I bought the high-speed faring block, probably the same one or very similar to the one you purchased.
Yes, it is big.
No, I don’t notice any pull to the side since I have installed it on my 24 footer with 16-degree deadrise.
Yes, you will knock if off on a trailer if you don’t position it so that it will clear the bunks or rollers. But the same is true of the transducer itself.

Bogii, your installer is full of crap (hope he is not a friend). I installed a thru hull with the Airmar Highspeed Flaring block for my Furuno 600L. Yes it is large and yes you have to cut it just exactly right, just like the instructions say. I measured mine a hundreds times before cutting it. make sure the flaring block is parallel to the keel, and make sure the anti-rotation bolt is in. This install made a huge difference on my boat. I have a perfect picture at 30+ mph in the ocean.
