Looks the goods - and if drag is an issue you can just raise the arm and paddle around with it out of the water until you reach your hotspot

Had a think over the weekend how to make the in hull option work for me (easily removable). This is what I ended up with.

I'll need to seal the container to the hull.

Then, on the water:
Fit a piece of foam with transducer cutout in the container.
Fill the container with water somewhere between top and bottom of foam.
Put the transducer in the cutout until a bit of water squeezes out.
Optional: thread a wooden chopstick through the transducer mounting hole

I think this way, the foam should stop the water from sloshing about and emptying the well.

Cut the bottom out of the container, leaving about a 5mm lip and silicone it to the hull.
I've seen guys fix their transducer to the lid and just fit that to the container when full of water for a sealed finish.
The only problem with through the hull is you won't get an accurate water temperature reading.

You guys are right. In/thru hull is the way to go.
Just got to find a right piece of foam/sponge now.

How's the in-hull install working so far? I've done the same for a Garmin Echo 300c and have had it installed this way for 5 years without issue. I'm wonder how this will work if i upgraded my sounder to one with side scan, down scan etc.

Yeah, working well.
I'm running the Helix 5 sonar/downscan (no sidescan).
No issues at all with resolution/noise, etc.
Haven't looked back since changing to in hull.
The only thing I've done is switch to a stiffer foam (cutdown from a yoga foam block).

Ended up over-modding the foam solution so much I threw it in the bin...

So going to trial this and see how it goes.
