The transom mount transducer 5 x 20

usually on relatively small I/O or outboard 5 x 20
boats. Do not use this method on an
inboard motor boat because turbulence is
created by the propeller ahead of the
transducer.

There are two methods of installation: flush No.1 M5 x 14

Transducer preparation

face of the transducer thoroughly with a
