    Transducer placement in 2019+ FX

    Anyone had success gluing a transducer inside the hull? Looks like 2 layers throughout and has me worried. Not interested in mounting a skimmer on the transom

    I have a few friends that have Brad with no issues. Some of the products they used to scuff the surface & hold the transducer in place. Hope this helps

    Anytime my brother. I know many of them even use the transom style that comes with a lot of the GPS. They just remove/cutoff the part that screws to transom first before installing inside the ski with no issues. Keep in touch we will need to get a ride together maybe before the end of the year.

    Yeah I saw that... I've ridden a few skis with transom mounted skimmers and didn't like the handling. Hoping to have the best of both worlds

    Going with the Simrad GO5.

    I'm trying to do a St Johns river ride in Florida over the winter. Click image for larger version.
