You can do it with the boat in the water (ideal as long as its calm out while the epoxy sets) or on the trailer. Either way it should be close enough so that you can fine tune the angle adjustment later. And of course if you totally mess it up just move over a little and try again. A 6" blob of epoxy out of sight in your hull won't hurt anything.

Thanks again - I have identified a location -there aren't many possibilities as I have to work through a 4 inch diameter inspection hatch - would this transducer work in the bilge chamber adjacent to the pump - there is more room here ?? Cheers

I don't see why not. Is the bilge flat already? No hull core or other non GRP voids in that area? You shouldn't get any electrical interference from a bilge pump.

Not wishing to make a meal of this ....but whilst the bilge is flat I think there is a small (3") void between the bottom of this and the keel - not composite just a gap. Is this going to inhibit performance of the sonar ? Thanks
