Default Simrad Evo3 transducer options

I understand that the simrad evo3 doesn't need a stand alone transducer module. What are my options for a 1k or 2k transducer to be mounted in the boat with no thru hulls or transom mount? I'm guessing the transducer hooks right into the back of the unit? Thanks in advance.

Fishing out of Boynton, I take it that you do some trolling as well as bottom fishing?. Tell me a bit about the boat.

You have the option of the shoot thru transducers. What is your aversion to a thru hull ?

This is the boat it's going in. There will be no through hulls and the deck is completely sealed and self bailing. Keeping it simple.. Boat will be used for bottom fishing and deep dropping on occasion. I'm either doing a shoot through or transom mount, but would prefer the shoot thru.

If the deck is sealed how would you install a shoot thru? Any access to bilge pumps?

I'm having the same issue. I was told airmar P79 or P50.

I will not be able to access my bilge pumps once my deck is in place as my entire deck is sealed and the pumps are only in place for a SHTF moment. The wires will come up inside my console which will be glassed in place.

I will have 1 sealed hatch inside the console to access the bilge which will have one bilge pump. Deck hasn't gone in yet so that's why I'm considering the shoot thru now. Need to make a decision. I will install the shoot thru directly below the access hatch.

Thanks. I'm basically doing the same thing.

Evo3 has a built-in 1kw dual channel CHIRP module. 2kw would require the S5100 external module.

In-hull CHIRP 1kw transducers: M135M, M265LH, M265LM

For bottom work I feel you will be better off using the m260. Keep in mind you won't have temp. This could also be over come by using the Totalscan transducer

I would install a trough hull instead of an in-hull which may require refilling of fluid in this boat.
