In-Hull Transducer on Zodiac Medline III

Hi there.

What would be the best location for a depth sounder transducer to be fitted inside the hull of a Medline III? Does anybody have any experience with a similar setup?

I know there's a bunch of threads out there with similar queries but I'm looking for some boat specific information if possible.

Hi, I have installed an in-hull (glued) depth sounder (only depth, no fish) inside the bilge compartment at the back of the boat.

I own a zodiac medline IIC (5.3m).

The technician said that place is best because is always under water and it is also a one-piece fiberglass section of the hull. If it is a 2-piece sandwich piece of hull, the eye does not work because of air in-between the hull layers.

I get depth readings even when travelling at 30knots.

Maximum depth before losing readings I have seen is 190m.

I hope that helps.
