Default Thoughts on different transom mount

Guys
My local dealer has suggested a way to get through hull results for an alloy boat that can't get access to fit a through hull transformer

He suggested fabricating a panel that is fitted flush to the hull . Then fit a through hull transformer in that. Result being much cleaner water than a typical transom mount

Anyone seen that done or have advice on the thought ??

Yep.

Quite a common solution on this side of the Pacific! Especially in mid to larger, plate alloy deep V boats. Some are built with these transducer extensions when the hull is cut out. Works great. Usually have some bracing triangles at the sides.
