Can side and down imaging transducers be installed inside the hull?

Can I epoxy the Side Imaging or Down Imaging transducer in the hull of my fiberglass boat and allow the sonar to shoot through the hull?

No. Side Imaging transducers have beams that shoot out to the side of the transducer therefore they cannot be epoxied into the hull and work properly.

In addition, we do not recommend this type of installation for Down Imaging.  Shooting through the hull of a fiberglass boat causes the signal to be lost.
