I decided to upgrade the electronics on my 2006 282 Sailfish this spring. I went with the Simrad NSS Evo3 12" MFD, 4G Radar, and Airmar B175H 1kw Transducer (3-3/4"dia drilled hole). I am having a real hard time finding a location I'm 100% confident in for the transducer. The bilge has a nice gap between the original transducer flat and the stringer, but it looks like it may be a hard squeeze tightening the transducer nut. The original transducer pockets are too small for the 1kw unit I bought. Any pics or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Have yet to commit to the install. I have a pro coming out this week to discuss. Last 28' Grady he did required the deck plate to be removed and reinstalled to allow solid hull access. Anyone have experience with this? I also am adding some photos of the bilge and hull for future references.

I don't have those notches in my 265 so I'm a little at a loss. I'm assuming they correlate to a flat spot outside of the stringer. You can mount a 0 degree thru hull there, yes?

Is your transducer 0 tilt or 12 degree or 20 degree?

Hopefully some 282 guys chime in with what they have in place.

I'm watching this closely! I have a 99 272 which looks identicks in the bilge. My b175hw is supposed to come in tomorrow and I've been racking my brain on where to mount it. I ordered the 20 degree tilted element which was advised by Jacobson marine. I'm thinking it's going to go right below the flat spot. I just don't think there is enough room forward of it due to the bulkhead.

I have a B164 mounted in my 282. It is a 20 degree and located between the stringers on the port side. If I remember correctly, it is about in line with the aft portion of the battery tray if you were to draw a line from port to starboard.

Thanks for the response. Do you notice any interference from the water pick ups in front of it?

Awesome thanks. Not sure if it's possible but a picture would be great. I'm just wanting to measure twice and cut once!
