Default bottom painting depth sounder transducers

Anyone do anything special?
Or do you just paint it as you do everything else.
I read a warning from Airmar about ketones in paint dissolving the transducer?

The transducer is a bronze in hull type.

I think maybe some thin coats would help if it is a solvent issue, but I dont know.

I cant recall if I asked this before.

Who of you buys water based antifoul for your transducers?

You can use MDR 720 to paint any transducer...several thins coats is all one needs.
Aquaguard is another brand that has transducer paint.

You can safely prime with a water based paint, then paint bottom fouling on top.
