Default Tilted element

Has anyone installed a tilted element transducer in an aluminum boat?

Any thoughts?

You will not want a Bronze X-ducer in a alum hull.

I believe the plastic housing is only available for a few manufacturers (Navman, Standard and maybe one or two others).

And the directions that came with my bronze transducer make mention of a stainless housing but I've never seen one listed anywhere.

There is a SS version avail in 12 and 20 degree. It's pricey though!

Stick with a plastic tilt mount for an aluminum boat - Why check the galvanic series of metals and you find out why -
