Can I mount my transom or thru-hull transducer inside the hull for a shoot-through?
We do not recommend it. Energy is lost passing through the hull; it is like shining a flashlight through a blanket. Transducers designed for a transom or thru-hull mounting do not have sufficient energy to offset this loss. You will not be able to see weak targets. Instead, choose a transducer that is designed for in-hull mounting such as Airmar's P79, M260, R199, or R299.
NOTE: "Shooting through the hull" will generally not work on wood or aluminum boats.
