Plastimo Echofish 300

At last I may have found a fishfinder that I can fit to my A400- the battery powered portable Echofish 300. I can use my trusty velco patches to hold it on the console when needed.

Here is my dilemma, it is designed for the tranducer to trail in the water (whilst drifting), held up by a float, but it also has a bracket for fixing to the transom.

Before I start drilling into the transom does anyone know if the fittings / transducer on this unit will be robust to stand upto c.25 knots?

What else - if anything should I consider before attempting to fix it & make holes below the waterline?

All advice gratefully recieved as always.
