Red face Fishfinder transducer installation position Maxum 2100 sc3

Hope someone with experience of actually installing a fishfinder on an '08 Maxum 2100 SC can help. I want to install the transducer inside the hull and need a spot which does not have wood or voids so it will work. Have found two spots - one behind and under the cooler recess (but a bit too high) and the other in the engine bay next to the bilge pump but unsure of layup . Does anyone know 100% if this is solid glass or the layup at at the engine location please. Have searched the web but now need specific experience with this

Happy to hear of other locations. Can obviously mount on the transom but would prefer to mount inside the boat. using a Humminbird Piranhamax 180 tri beam transducer.

Default

the engine bay is solid fiberglass and next to the bilge pump is the common place that they are installed...you should have your smaller digital depth finder transducer located right near the bilge pump......so....
mounting that new transducer could be installed there...but mount it on the opposite side of the existing digital xdcr due to interference....if there is no xdcr located in the engine bay....then it's ok to locate it in the engine bay...also make sure that you have it pointed straight down during install.....not pointed perpendicular to the hull angle...

so.....also....welcome to the zoo..
