Default Easy job

If you cannot find an installer it is pretty simple these days to install one. The new Airmar tilt transducers do not require a fairing block, which is the hard part. This link will show you your choices:

The tilt ducer makes it a snap.

Find a spot on your hulls bottom that is always in water contact and not near any thru hull or hang downs.

After picking your spot just drill the hole with the correct hole saw. Always drill from the inside out this away when the hole is complete you know you have good access to do the install. Guys that do it from the outside in have hit stringer and it becomes a nightmare.

Once the hole is done, dry fit the ducer. If it is a go next remove it. If the bottom is cored you will need to remove about ½ of core around the hole, which will cover the flange of the transducer.

The easiest way to remove core is to put an allen wrench in a drill and walk it around the edge of the hole.

The key will chop out all of the core.

Next just pack the void with a solid compound, like hull & deck putty or any West Marine system high density fill.

After that put it in as per the instructions.

It is easer that it sounds.
