There are a few posts on this subject, but most from 5 to 10 years ago, so I hope no one minds if I revisit it.

I am replacing my entire instrument system as the original 1986 B&G system has finally given up. The existing depth transducer is on the centre line in the heads. It seems that the standard triducer that comes with most systems these days is the Airmar DST800 or a variant, which requires a 2 inch hole cut through the hull, (the current housing is much smaller). I'm concerned about the extra fairing, particularly as hoist straps often end up lifting directly under the transducer. Also, with has anyone fitted a triducer in this position, and does it give an accurate speed/log reading?

Any experience with this or other solutions would be very welcome.
Many thanks, Pete Fowler, Dale Moon
