I've found a surface mount that I really like. It's a combo above water and below water. I feel confident now with watching their install video. It's just drilling a small hole for the wire to feed through and applying alot of adhesive to the back. That I was not worried about at all. It was the wiring part that I was concerned with. But Seapup made that sound simple enough. So I'm going to give it a try.

make sure you use plenty of sealant on the water side of the hole...on the back side it may allow water to intrude into the wood of the transom.....which as I stated will cause rot....

good luck..take lotsa pics for us...

If I remember though, wasn't it drydocked? Imagine a shaky hand when I moved my aft bilge pump to the lowest possible point in the engine bay, while in the water at my dock, and drilling straight down with a tape guide on my bit set for 1/2" , and praying that the hull was thicker than that...

Tommy
yep..sitting on blocks letting the sunshine in wasn't the best feeling in the world....but it's all fixed now...new bottom paint on it and you can't even tell where I holed the hull....

yep..I know the feeling now about drilling and in the water would be worser.!!
