Default Transducer advice needed

Hi,
My current set up is a 25’ Grady white Sailfish that has a Furuno 585 with the small tri-ducer (I believe the P66 style). The temp went out on the unit and I want to replace it with something equal or better. I recently added an HDS Gen 2 10” and a Gen 3 7”, so I am also looking for a transducer for the lowrance Gen 3 as well. For the Gen 3, I’m not too interested in the structure scan, but definitely want to take advantage of the chirp and down scan on the lowrance with a quality transducer for chirp. I am leaning towards a transom mount as I feel it’s best for my set up as there is not too much room for a thru-hull. But maybe someone else has a similar set up and can provide insight?

Would really appreciate some opinions on what transducer to use for each set up, with hopes they don’t interfere with each other, meaning their frequencies.

Thanks in advance!

Fish 60% of the time in the Chesapeake bay so max 120' and 40% out of ocean city Maryland in the canyons.

If you only want transom mount the Airmar TM258 or TM260 would be an upgrade over the P66 on the 585. For chirp there is a new p66 size comming which is an upgrade to the TM150, I think it's called TM160. The TM265 is a higher performance upgrade to the previously mentioned chirp ducers.

The coming transducer is TM75Mi, it's a transom mount version of B75M with the addition of DownScan.
