You do need to install the transducer with the face parallel with the waterline. You can achieve this by installing a fiberglass tube vertically inside the hull, with its ID just slightly larger than the diameter of the transducer. Then put some mineral oil in the tube, and push the transducer down into the oil. You cannot have any air between the transducer and the hull. Of course, you could also put a wad of epoxy putty on the face of the transducer and on the hull, then push the transducer onto the hull putty, and align it straight up and down. Tape in place until the epoxy putty hardens.
