Hi all, I installed the TD today, it was easy except tighting the top nut, had to get an angle pipe wrench out of the truck, the rubber washer is a little hokey, but I put it on anyways, if that rubber washer failes, major problems, but it should not for many years as long as it is not submerged in salt water, I am posting pictures of the job, they are not labled, but you guys will understand ! if anybody has any ? feel free to ask away !
I tried uploading all the pics but it will only let me upload these !

Tara11,
Can't quite tell by the photos...does your transducer compensate for the angle of the vee or do you have a fairing block between the transducer and the hull?

Dave, There is no faring block. The compensation angle is built-in.
Here is what the 'ducer looks like before it is installed.



Nice job Tara!

How thick is the plug?

Another question:

Is there a warning/info with the Airmar tilted element instructions about mounting it in front of or in the path of prop or other thru hull (live well pickup)? Cavitaiton problems?

I spoke to parker and Airmar and the guy who sold it to me to find out the perfect place to put it ! I have two motors and they are counter roatating, so I put it where they told me to and am not sure what you mean by plug !

He's talking about the cut out piece of the hull in the pix. How thick is it?


Putting one of these X-ducer's in front of suff will not hurt thing. It only stick's out past the hull 3/16in.

About a half inch, maybe 5/8 max, solid fiberglass !

WHAT, solid fiberglass ?!

No foam, balsa, cork, tree leaves, grass trimmings ?

Imagine a fiberglass boat built of.......FIBERGLASS !

:D :D :D

Thanks for the reply, WartHog, I'm wantin' one of those tilted elements real bad. Only negative I hear of is limited to 600watts. I'll not be in more that 200' or so of water, so, does it matter?

I think Tara fishes deep WC water, maybe a report from him later.

It should not matter at all.
You'd be fine with half that much power in 200' of water.
600 should do you very well.

cool site !


Kevin in your first post did you say if the rubber washer fail major problems ?

i dont see it being any problem at all, the 5200 used will keep water from leaking in...I also recently installed one and didnt use the rubber washer as it was getting "cocked" to one side when i was tighten it down.
