Brian,

Cape Dory's are well constructed boat, but the hull would certainly not be as thick at that of a Westsail. There are generally two methods for installing a transducer as an in-hull puck.

1. Epoxy directly to the hull so that transducer ends up level (no air bubbles, of course).
2. Epoxy a piece of PVC pipe to the hull with a street clean-out screw cap and submerse the transducer in mineral oil, or baby oil. The method that Roger used.

I have read reports of people having good results with both methods. The Navman manual actually suggests epoxying directly to the hull.

I shopped around for the best price at the time and believe I bought my Navman fish finder through go2marine.com.

George

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
