  • Transom mount transducer install

    So I need to install a new transom mount transducer on my new/old Intrepid to let me fish before I can re-do my bilge and install a new thru-hull 'ducer. Since my boat is wet-slipped all year I hate making holes below the waterline. In the past I have been able to glue (5200) small wood pads to the transom and then attach my ducer to that but all those were all trailer boats.

    Can I 5200 or epoxy a small piece of wood or starboard to which I can screw the transducer to? Will it hold up to being submerged or should I just screw into the hull? Boat is a '94 Intrepid 28WA.

    5200 will be fine. Fill the wholes with the 5200 before screwing the transducer in place, then run a nice bead of the 5200 around the transducerr after its in place. Youll be good.

      On our 250 I installed a 3/4" piece of starboard secured with four screws embedded in 5200 to the transom for mounting the structure scan and fishfinder transducers. Now the pictures are restored you can review the installation under projects "Yet another 250 thread page 9.

        Check out Amazon. They have a mounting block that is held with 3m glue. No holes needed in the boat. meant just for this purpose. I will have to look for the name. It is like 20 bucks.
