Fitting Sounder into the Hull

I am planning to move the sounder into the Hull of Time Bandit. To do this I will have to drill a hole in the Deck and then glue the sounder to the hull.

Can anyone recommend a reasonable quality round non slip hatch about 5". once fitted I will silicone the hatch closed to ensure it stays watertight as I dont expect to have to have regular access.

I am looking for something that won't stand to far up from the deck has a flat face to avoid gathering too much crap in it.

I have several types in stock we use on the Shearwater, some with foam o rings which are very water tight, white or black, I think they are poly prop so a bit more durable than the dinghy type, I can send you pictures give me an e-mail info@bembridgeoutboards.co.uk

They have a shallow well however it does not go down to the hull so there would be an air gap.

I've been thinking of doing this ever since I bought the hull. I just stop short of making a hole in the deck everytime

I might just wait Chris and let you take the lead on this one and see how you get on. Are you sure that 5" is enough for getting clear access to setting the transponder in place?

If you don't want regular access then perhaps a nice stainless plate with 6 equally spaced holes around the outside edge, selftapped and sikaflexed into position would be OK.

Thanks Jim email sent.

I have also found these ones which look pretty good (6" push in deckplate)

It's a job to know where to fit a transducer in this lot. Where do you reckon is the best place?

you got an anchor locker? if you have to cut a whole in your deck then consider using one of these it might come in Handy. my fist is 115mm across so it will fit through the apertures of the two larger fittings. I think your hands are about the same size as mine ish so you'l hav room to work.

Make sure you don't screw the boat onto your trailer bunks when you are fitting the sounder

Why would you want to drill into the deck and then have the hassle of sealing it and running the cable out etc, can't you just hang one off the transom
