Dear pilot,

I thought I had read somewhere that epoxy was needed to mount the transducer. I can see how that would be a good idea in the bilge of a bass boat but maybe not for a canoe?

Given the need for epoxy, and the fact that my Old Town has a keel which creates a "hole" of about 1" in both depth and width right down the middle of the canoe I think I'll stay with a portable transducer.

That "hole" makes an awfully big void that would have to be filled to perfection in order for a permanent mount to work.

In my mind there is too much margin of error and I'd probably wind up with a non-working transducer permanently mounted in an inconvenient place on the canoe. ;-)

Thanks for explaining the process though.

Regards,

Tim Murphy :-)
