I've got no direct experience with the Hawkeye (the price does sound great) but if there are any other deals or if you prefer another model don't feel constrained to the in-hull puck models- any transducer can work inside the hull. I think Roger laid out the best path to follow, and just want to second it. Our Kendall came with an ancient Signet depth sounder and its standard ancient through hull transducer was/is mounted in a well inside the hull, also at the base of the hanging locker by the nav station. The well in our boat is not as simple or clean an installation as Roger's and had drained its oil by the time we purchased it, but since fixing and refilling the well it has worked great- we're very glad the previous owners didn't drill the hole. Good luck.
