Default Simrad evo2 Transducer

Hi...

I am having to replace my evo1 with an evo2. I fish in the Gulf of Mexico typically in water from 60 feet to 250 feet.

As chirp is available I was thinking of changing the transducer from the current B164 to a B175H. One of the reasons for a B175H is that I fish small reef and structure patches so a narrow beam is important. Another reason is that the two transducers are the same physical size.

Is it possible to use the same hole in the hull?

Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nigel

I removed a B-164 and replaced with a B-175HW. Perfect!! Took about 2 hrs to get the 164 out.

The B175H would be perfect for your situation.
