George and Rayna Shaunfield

Brian, 2+ years ago I installed a Navman depth finder with a thru hull transducer in my Cape Dory 26. However, Navman's instructions said it could be installed as an in-hull puck. After testing with the transducer in a baggie of water and as a temporary installation, I used a tube of silicon sealant to form a large mound under a berth (hopefully without any air bubbles) and pressed the transducer into it so that it was approximately vertical. Well, that temporary installation is still working fine. I have not detected any problem with the signal, but so far have not been in water deeper than 300 feet even in the Gulf of Mexico.

I have bought a Navman fish finder for my W28 and plan to install the transducer as an in-hull puck also. I will install it under the V-berth, but have not yet decided what to use for installing it -- silicon, epoxy, etc.
